Caryophyllaceae Virtual Symposium 2022

Virtual Symposium
Phylogenetics and taxonomy of Caryophyllaceae
Current understanding of relationships and work towards an online species-level checklist
8.-10 February 2022
Hosted by the Botanic Garden & Botanical Museum Berlin and the Universita degli Studi di Palermo
This symposium is intended to bring together researchers working on systematics, phylogenetics and taxonomy of Caryophyllaceae and has three major aims: 1) To present ongoing research, 2) to encourage collaboration and to promote community-building, and 3) to start working towards a comprehensive species-level taxonomic backbone of the Caryophyllaceae.
Topics of presentations should focus on: Genus-level or species-level phylogenetic studies, biogeography, morphology and character evolution, floristics and species inventories, regional flora treatments or regional checklists, revisions and monographs of specific taxa. Student presentations are very welcome.
The symposium will consist of sessions of presentations and one discussion session focusing on the approach towards assembling an online species-level taxonomic backbone for the Caryophyllaceae in the context of the Global Caryophyllales Initiative.
Registration and abstracts
Participation in the symposium is free of charge.
Registration in order to participate without a presentation is possible until February 7.
Abstract submission is closed.
We hope to meet many of you at the symposium and look forward to your contributions!
