Lobivia Britton & Rose, a cytogenetic and phylogenetic analysis of species from Argentina.

Project summary:

My PhD project is focused on the genus Lobivia (Cactaceae), especially on the Argentinean species, and my main goal is to combine molecular, cytogenetical and morphological studies to reach a better understanding of the genus, defining its circumscription and the relationship between the known species and its varieties.
