A classification of pollinators (mainly of Erysimum) in functional groups and how to recognise them Read more
We have met to think about evoflor new paths, specifically to address new ways of increasing the collaboration between evoflor members and how to interact even better. Read more
We present in this paper a molecular phylogeny of the genus Moricandia (Brassicaceae). We have found that a Spanish population previously ascribed to Rytidocarpus moricandioides is indeed a Moricandia species, and we propose to name it as M. rytidocarpoides sp. nov. In addition, M. foleyi appeared outside the Moricandia lineage but within the genus Eruca. Therefore, M. foleyi should be excluded from the genus Moricandia and be ascribed to the genus Eruca.

Javier Valverde is now a rookie Doctor in Biology. He obtained his PhD in the University of Granada the past 9th of June, 2017. His PhD dissertation was entitled “Structured generalization: Evolutionary dynamics at a fine spatial scale in a generalist system” (“Generalización Estructurada: Dinámica Evolutiva a Escala Espacial Fina en un Sistema Generalista”).
We have just published a paper in Scientific Reports about the maintenance of the fine scale (< 20m) genetic structure in Erysimum mediohispanicum. Read more
Included in Annals of Botany‘s special issue on developmental robustness and species diversity, our papers nalyzes the role of pollinators in the evolution of the phenotypic variation, disparity and integration of the corolla shape of 111 Brassicaceae taxa. Read more
Our paper “The temporal dimension in individual-based plant pollination networks” has been published in Oikos. In this paper we present the temporal changes occurring in a pollination network established between individuals of the extremely generalist herb Erysimum mediohispanicum (Brassicaceae). Read more
It is now like a tradition to travel Morocco in February to sampling some crucifers. This year was not exception and we spent a week traveling ~ 4000 km from Granada to South Morocco and back. Read more
Ecological and genetic processes producing speciation: the interplay between hybridization, poliploidy, and local adaptation in generalist plants. A scientific project funded by the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad.
