Systematic and biogeography of Schinus (Anacardiaceae)

Cíntia Luíza da Silva Luz, University of Sao Paulo

I am developing my Ph.D. at University of São Paulo. The main goal of the thesis project is to contribute to the systematic of the Schinus using a phylogenetic approach designed to generate hypothesis about the evolution and biogeography history of the genus. The IAPT Research Plant Program in Plant Systematic 2014 provided financial support to visit the MCNS herbarium collection and to perform field work to collected samlpes of Argentinean Schinus. In this expedition I was able to study Schinus populations, endemic species and to colect material for morphological and molecular studies, about 28 specimens from which 25 are Schinus species and three genera are closely related to Schinus (table 1).
