Project summary:

The infrageneric classification of Utricularia faces many incongruences and taxonomic problems, what needs to be better explored. Ultrastructural morphology has been useful to support taxonomic resolutions in the genus. Therefore, we aim to combine this approach with molecular biology to elucidate the taxonomy and evolutionary relationships of three sections.
