Abstract

Lianas represent 1/3 of the total biomass of leaves from tropical forests and contribute up to 40% of woody stems from these forests. Lianas also account for a large percentage of the species diversity of tropical forests, as well as constitute an important source of food for many animals. The tribe Bignonieae includes 392 species and 21 genera, and constitutes the most diverse and abundant group of lianas in the neotropics. This project combines morphological, ecological and phylogenetic data to study the systematics of the tribe Bignonieae. More specifically, this project aims to: (1) produce a taxonomic revision of the tribe Bignonieae as a whole; (2) produce a website containing information about the systematics, ecology and evolution of the tribe Bignonieae; and (3) reconstruct a species-level phylogeny of Bignonieae. Some of the expected products are: (a) scientific papers on the systematics of various genera of Bignonieae, including taxonomic revisions, descriptions of new taxa, and nomenclatural changes; (b) a website containing detailed information on the taxonomy, phylogeny and evolution of Bignonieae, including specialized literature (including proto logs), interactive identification keys, and a photo gallery, including photos of living material and herbarium specimens (including types); and (c) scientific papers on the phylogeny of the various genera of Bignonieae. This project will allow us to greatly broaden our knowledge of Bignonieae, which will contribute important information for a better understanding of the processes that have shaped plant diversification in the Neotropics.
