Taxonomy, phylogeny and biogeography of the monophyletic clade Anthurium section

Project summary:

This research combines traditional taxonomic work with modern molecular and phylogenetic. in order to clarify the systematics, biogeography and evolution within the genus Anthurium (one of the most species-rich groups in Neotropical forests) focusing in monophyletic clade Dactylophyllium section, which characterized for having compound and palmate-lobed leaves.
