About This Project

Dichanthelium consists of ~50 species in North America and is one of the most taxonomically difficult groups of grasses. They occur in every state in the US, typically in relatively undisturbed forests, so the proper identification of species within this group of grasses is of utmost importance. We will generate DNA data in order to reconstruct the evolutionary relationships among species to create a stable and objective classification system.
