Research interests

My study aims to discover how the different Werauhia species evolved and to understand phylogenetic relations between these beautiful tropical epiphytic plants. To answer these questions, several studies are conducted simultaneously, including floral morphology, anatomy, molecular systematics, biogeography, and pollination. Moreover, new species remain to be described, and others to be discovered!

 Taxa of interest
