Morphology and Classification of Compositae: from Cassini to NGS and back again.

The objective of the workshop is to present an overview of the current knowledge on Compositaeclassification, evolution and biogeography, with an emphasis on morphological characterization ofthe many tribes.Through a series of short lectures by experts on each tribe, we will take the attendants on ajourney to discover the Compositae, providing the tools to easily understand the specializedterminology and a road map to navigate the intricate taxonomy by means of the characterization ofthe main groups in the most successful plant family on Earth.
WORKSHOP TOPICS
1. General introduction to the family and discussion of main characters used in the taxonomy
2. Introduction to microcharacters and specimen preparation
3. Basal Grade: Barnadesieae, Nassauvieae, Mutisieae, Gochnatieae
4. Central grade: Cardueae, Cichorieae, Vernonieae, Gnaphalieae, Astereae, Senecioneae,Anthemideae, Liabeae
5. Heliantheae Alliance: Heliantheae, Helenieae, Neurolaeneae, Coreopsideae, Millerieae, Tageteae,Eupatorieae.
For each tribe, an overview of main morphological features, current knowledge on classification,species diversity, evolutionary relationships, geographic distribution and ecological and economicimportance will be presented.Morphological characterization will focus on vegetative and reproductive diagnostic characters to aid recognition of the main groups.
