Pyrus Tamamschianae - Version 2014.3 [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
[Excerpt] This species is listed as Endangered in view of its extent of occurrence (EOO) estimated to be less than 5,000 km2, its area of occupancy (AOO) estimated to be 32 km2, its~existence at five locations and an inferred and projected continuing decline in EOO, AOO and the area, extent and quality of habitat because of the negative influence of selective logging and wood extraction. [::Common Name(s)] [::]English - Tamamshyan's Pear [::Taxonomic Notes] Pyrus tamamschianae Fed. was described by A. Fedorov in 1952 from Erevan floristic region. Leaves glabrous from both sides, orbicular, not nigrescent during drying; petioles of different length. Fruits pear-shaped with long stoutish fruit-stalk. Calyx lobes pointed, stretched, pubescent. [::Range Description] This species is endemic to Armenia, where it is known from~Yerevan and~Zangezur~floristic regions.~There is a plantation grown from seeds in Daralegis floristic region. The species is recorded in gardens and plantations in the villages Gudemnis, Vagravar and Shvanidzor of Megri floristic district. [::Countries] Native:Armenia (Armenia) [::Population] This species is rare with a fragmented population occurring at five locations. [::Habitat and Ecology] It grows in arid open woodlands, as well as broad-leaved forests, between 1,000-2,000 m asl. [::Major Threat(s)] The major threats are human induced habitat loss and degradation caused by selective logging and harvesting, in particular wood extraction for local use.
