Project: Evolutionary biogeography and systematics of the Halymeniaceae (Rhodophyta) in the western Indian Ocean
- project duration
- 01-JAN-03 – 31-DEC-05
- The red algal family Halymeniaceae offers a good model system to the test the current classification based on morphology and anatomy by means of independent molecular markers. Additional the phylogeny will be interpreted from a biogeographic point of view to obtain a better insight in the evolution of the macroalgal benthic flora of the western Indian Ocean.
