We have gathered in Granada for the 5th evoflor meeting to talk about present and future projects.
We have started a new field campaign visiting a Moricandia foetida population in the Desert of Tabernas (Almería). This campaign will develop part of the project Hidden extinctions: Losing plant diversity in Iberian arid zones as a consequence of the anthropic-mediated expansion of weedss.
This time we went south, to the Antiatlas Mountains in search for Moricandia and Erysimum.

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”).
