Article
The monocot family Cyclanthaceae (Pandanales) comprises ca. 230 known species in 12 genera restricted to the Neotropics. The family has not been the subject of a species‐level molecular phylogenetic study to date, with multiple evolutionary and biogeographic questions about Cyclanthaceae still unanswered. In this study, we address genus‐ and specie...
Conference Paper
El género Sphaeradenia Harling es uno de los géneros más diversos en la familia Cyclanthaceae para Colombia; presenta especies con hábitos verdaderamente epífitos, aunque también pueden ser plantas terrestres o trepadoras. Para Antioquia se han registrado 10 especies. algunas de las cuales son comunes en el departamento y comparten requerimientos d...
Conference Paper
Para Colombia se ha estimado que existirían 65.000 especies de insectos, de las cuales 7000 serían coleópteros; sin embargo, trabajos recientes con algunas familias, muestran que la cifra sería mayor. Además, desempeñan un papel importante como polinizadores, ya que cerca del 73% de las especies de Angiospermas silvestres para las que se conoce el...
Chapter
Se presenta la lista anotada de la flora de plantas vasculares del Alto de San Miguel, como resultado de revisión de literatura, consultas de bases de datos, revisión de colecciones de herbario y exploración de campo realizada durante casi cinco años. Se reportan 520 especies, pertenecientes a 136 familias y 319 géneros, distribuidas en 454 especie...

A new species of Asplundia from the Cordillera Central in Colombia is described and illustrated. Asplundia callejasii is placed in A. subg. Asplundia, based on the morphology of the staminate flowers. The most distinctive characteristic of A. callejasii is its long leaves, with the blade unicostate, oblanceolate, shallowly divided, and very lustrou...

Genetic diversity is key in providing the variation needed to face stochastic change. Increased habitat loss alters population size and dynamics posing serious threats to the conservation of wild species. Colombia has undergone massive deforestation over the last century, but harbours extraordinary high species diversity of genus Zamia (Cycadales),...

Wild plant species with potential for use as ornamental green foliage are often reported. Nevertheless, there are few studies evaluating morphological and anatomical aspects associated with this use. Preliminary trials suggest that the species of Sphaeradenia (Sander ex Mast.) Harling, a Cyclantaceae that occurs from Costa Rica to Peru, is suitable...

Link to dowload the paper: http://rdcu.be/vYmr The genus Zamia (Zamiaceae: Cycadales) exhibits its greatest diversity in Colombia and is highly threatened by habitat loss, extraction for ornamental plant trade, and mining, among other factors. One of the most important considerations for the effective conservation of Zamia is its highly specialize...
Conference Paper
The genus Zamia (Zamiaceae: Cycadales) reaches its greatest diversity in Colombia and its species are highly threatened by different factors. One of the most relevant and frequently ignored aspects for establishing conservation programs is its highly specialized pollination process. Despite the importance of pollination for the Zamia populations’ v...
Conference Paper
Zamia incognita is distributed within the Magdalena Medio region, in the Antioquia and Santander departments, Colombia. Since 2009 various activities like research, exploration and cultivation have been executed with the aim of obtaining the greatest amount of possible information, in order to elaborate an effective conservation strategy for this s...
Conference Paper
Los membrácidos son una familia de insectos fitófagos que junto con Cicadellidae‚ Melizoderidae‚ Myerslopiidae y su grupo hermano Aetalionidae‚ conforman el clado Membracoidea. Ocho de las nueve subfamilias de Membracidae se encuentran exclusivamente en América‚ con la mayor diversidad en la región Neotropical. Los membrácidos son reconocidos por l...
Conference Paper
Zamia incognita (Zamiaceae) es una especie descrita recientemente de la región del Magdalena medio en Colombia, de la cual no se tenía información sobre su biología reproductiva. En el marco de la formulación de una estrategia para la conservación de poblaciones silvestres de esta especie, se realizaron observaciones periódicas diurnas y nocturnas...

We are working on describing derelomine new species, as well as their interactions with Angiosperms, to finaly understand the evolutionary history of the associations.
Project
My research focuses on taxonomy and phylogeny of neotropical family Cyclanthaceae. I am working on the nomenclature as well as on the molecular and morphologic phylogeny and character evolution in all genera of Cyclanths.
