Description

Evolution of vascular cambial variants in a large genus of lianas- Paullinia (Sapindaceae)

6:30pm Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Presented by Joyce Chery, PhD Candidate, Integrative Biology, University of California, Berkeley

Abstract: The wood anatomy of lianas (wood vines) in distantly related lineages have converged on the “liana syndrome”, an anatomy that sets it apart from trees and shrubs. In some extreme cases, the liana syndrome leads to unusual activity of the vascular cambial manifesting as vascular cambial variants that take on a diversity of forms in different groups. This talk will focus on the development and evolution in a phylogenetic context of vascular cambial variants in Paullinia (Sapindaceae) a large group of neotropical lianas. The talk will conclude with preliminary results and future directions of the speaker’s dissertation.
