Grant no's 279981, 279984 & 279970. Period, Nov./Dec. 2010 to Oct./Nov. 2013.
Simon Mayo, Laurence Livermore and I have just returned from a trip to Brazil where we ran a series of meetings at the Instituto de Botânica in Sao Paulo, and a scratchpads training workshop in Joinville as part of the 63º Congresso Nacional de Botânica. The focus of the workshop were the families Eriocaulaceae and Xyridaceae and we were lucky enough to be joined by some of the world's foremost taxonomic experts in these families.
Check out the resulting scratchpads at www.eriocaulaceae.e-monocot.org and www.xyridaceae.e-monocot.org. Content from these scratchpads is now already feeding into the eMonocot Portal at www.emonocot.org.
Participating at the workshop for Eriocaulaceae were: Livia Echternacht, Marcelo Trovó, Ana Maria Giulietti Harley, Sylvia Phillips, Thomas Stuetzel, Paulo Sano, Lara Parra, and Vera Scatena.
Participating on behalf of the Xyridaceae community were Maria das Graças Lapa Wanderley, Lisa Campbell, Gisele Oliveira Silva and Juliana Santos Guedes.
