Project Summary:
Hibert Huaylla will study the systematics, distribution and conservation status of Cardenanthus and related genera of the Iridaceae (tribe Tigrideae) in Bolivia. It will involve training in and use of both molecular and traditional methods. Cardenanthus is near-endemic to Bolivia. Most species are known from single localities and their systematic relationships and taxonomic status are poorly understood. Thus conservation priorities are not clear. This research should make possible a reappraisal of species numbers, their relationships and conservation status for at least the Bolivian species in this genus following Huaylla’s earlier studies in the related genus Mastigostyla.
