Species delimitation of the Mandevilla tenuifolia complex (Apocynaceae)

Project summary:

Mandevilla tenuifolia complex is widely distributed in the Brazilian rupestrian fields, having a high degree of polymorphism and the boundaries between one population and others aren't clear. The aim is to evaluate the circumscription of the lineages, using an integrative approach based on molecular data, morphometric and modeling of distribution.
