The different vegetation formations of the "Cerrado" biome are marked by distinct environmental factors. Plant leaves are the organs that have more structural variations that are interpreted as adaptations to specific environments. In this context, the project aims to study leaf morphological characteristics of woody species from "Vereda", relating them to the factors found in this ambient.
