- 01-OCT-04 – 30-SEP-08
- Pycreus and several other, related Cyperaceae genera form clearly recognizable groups within Cyperus S.l. by the presence of a laterally compressed pistil. The relationships between the different genera and the species of Pycreus are adly known. This study tends to bring more clarity by the combination of morpohological, anatomical and molecular studies. Besides this we tend to make a revision of the genus Pycreus that will be accessible by an interactive database.
