The following comprehensive bibliography of literature pertaining to the Melastomataceae was compiled primarily by Susanne Renner and Karsten Meyer. I am currently attempting to clean up this entire list and will soon give this page a major overhaul. If you are aware of any omissions or errors in this list, please contact the webmaster (dpenneys@ufl.edu) and corrections will promptly be made.
