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.
