    Project Details


    The Páramo ecosystem is the most diverse high-altitude ecosystem on Earth with
    more than 4000 species of vascular plants. A naturally fragmented ecosystem, it also
    houses one of the youngest and fastest evolving biota. In this thesis, molecular data
    from the South American species of Oreobolus (Cyperaceae) and Páramo
    representatives within the Melastomeae tribe (Melastomataceae) were used to
    investigate the impact of Andean orogeny and recent climatic fluctuations on
    diversification processes.
