Planetary Biodiversity Inventory - Euphorbia

Welcome to the site of the Euphorbia Planetary Biodiversity Inventory project !

The goal of this international collaborative project is to produce
a comprehensive online resource of information on the plant genus Euphorbia. Our approach will be to follow an evolutionary (or phylogenetic) framework based primarily on DNA sequence data from different gene regions in the plant cell. It is our mission as well to encourage, coordinate, and support collaborative work between Euphorbia experts worldwide willing to conduct field work and carry out taxonomic and phylogenetics studies on critical groups within the genus.
