Our research is focusing on the exploration, description and monitoring of bryophyte flora in the tropics.
One aspect of this work is to support the Convention on Biological Diversity by producing conservation tools.
We are focusing on hybridisation, biogeography and niche evolution.
We are producing a family level phylogeny and documenting and revising species diversity.
We are part of a collaboration cataloguing the vascular plant diversity of southern Mexico and Central America.
