Systematic and floristic research in vascular plants


Researchers belonging to this group conduct taxonomic and systematic studies on families and genera of vascular plants, contributing to geographical flora or taxonomical monographic studies, mainly of the Mediterranean Basin and tropical areas. The aims of the group are to coordinate a team led from the Botanical Garden closely with other institutions and researches. The main resource is the great importance that means the Tropical and Mediterranean historical herbaria at RJB, with the attempt to profit this legacy, giving future projection to it. It draws on the experience of the group and existing methodological synergies to address more effectively the study of different taxa and different floristic regions. The work focuses on the characterization of species and genera and in establishing kinship relationships.
