Introduction
I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I am working with Drs. Stephen Smith and Chris Dick on an NSF-funded project that focuses on the evolution of Ericales. Some of the side projects I am currently working on are about the systematics and diversification patterns and processes of Vochysiaceae and plastome evolution in Polygalaceae and Cistaceae.

Article
Vochysia sobralii, a new species of Vochysiaceae endemic to the Serra do Cachimbo, in the state of Pará, Brazil, is described and illustrated in this study. The newly described species is included in Vochysia section Pachyantha, which comprises species with tomentose ovary and without petals. Additionally, two updated identification keys (one dicho...

The shortage of reliable primary taxonomic data limits the description of biological taxa and the understanding of biodiver-sity patterns and processes, complicating biogeographical, ecological, and evolutionary studies. This deficit creates a significant taxo-nomic impediment to biodiversity research and conservation planning. The taxonomic impedi...

Premise To further advance the understanding of the species-rich, economically and ecologically important angiosperm order Myrtales in the rosid clade, comprising nine families, approximately 400 genera and almost 14,000 species occurring on all continents (except Antarctica), we tested the Angiosperms353 probe kit. Methods We combined high-throug...

The urge to organise the world around us is an essential part of human nature. Naming and categorising enable us to store and access information ef ciently. The need to name and categorise extends to the natural world and, in particular, to living organisms. The science underpinning this area of knowledge is called Taxonomy, and is as old as humani...
Article
The advent and advance of next generation sequencing over the past two decades made it possible to accumulate large quantities of sequence reads that could be used to assemble complete or nearly complete organelle genomes (plastome or mitogenome). The result has been an explosive increase in the availability of organelle genome sequences with over...

Premise: Despite the fast pace of exploration of the patterns and processes influencing Neotropical plant hyperdiversity, the taxa explored are mostly from large groups that are widely distributed, morphologically diverse, or economically important. Vochysiaceae is an example of an undersampled taxon, providing an excellent system for investigatin...

Phylogenomics has become increasingly popular in recent years mostly due to the increased affordability of next generation sequencing techniques. Phylogenomics has sparked interest in multiple fields of research, including systematics, ecology, epidemiology, and even personalized medicine, agriculture and pharmacy. Despite this trend, it is usually...
Article
The current classification of angiosperms is based primarily on concatenated plastid markers and maximum likelihood (ML) inference. This approach has been justified by the assumption that plastid DNA (ptDNA) is inherited as a single locus and that its individual genes produce congruent trees. However, structural and functional characteristics of pt...

The complete plastome sequence of Microlicia cogniauxiana R. Romero (Melastomataceae) (NCBI accession number MK726004), a plant endemic to the campos rupestres formations of the Brazilian savannahs, is presented in this study. A genomic unit is 155,883 bp in length, comprising 130 genes, 85 DNA coding sequences, 37 tRNAs, eight rRNAs, and 23 intron...

This study presents the species of Vochysiaceae that occur in canga vegetation of Serra dos Carajás, in the Pará state, Brazil, including morphological descriptions, illustrations, and comments. Four species were recorded: Callisthene microphylla, Qualea multiflora, Q. parviflora and Vochysia haenkeana.

Vochysiaceae is represented in Brazil by ca. 160 species, distributed mainly the in Amazon Forest, Atlantic Forest, and Cerrado. The Diamantina Plateau is located between the north of Serra do Cipó and the south of Grão Mogol, in the Espinhaço Range central southern region. We have found 22 species of Vochysiaceae in the studied area, distributed a...

Qualea insignis , a new species of Vochysiaceae endemic to the Serra das Confusoes area, Piaui state, Brazil, is here described and illustrated. The species is placed in Qualea sect. Costatifolium , due to the number of secondary veins/cm and the inflorescence architecture. A comparison with Q. grandiflora and Q. parviflora , the other species of t...

Vochysia Aublet (1775: 18) encompasses ca. 140 species, distributed from Mexico to southern Brazil. They are mainly large trees, with spurred yellow flowers, usually 3-petaled and with a single fertile stamen (Kawasaki 2007). The genus was described by Aublet (1775) in his work on plants from French Guiana as ‘ Vochy ’, taken from a native name amo...
