Project summary:

Chrysobalanaceae is a pantropical member of Malpighiales that was poorly sampled in phylogenetic and biogeographic studies. This project will build a comprehensive plastome phylogeny for this family, that will be used as basis for reconstructing the biogeographic history and investigating the evolution of its largest and exclusively Neotropical genus, Hirtella.
