CABARROI Milay, Cuba
The monographic study of the poroid hymenochaetaceae (Basidiomycotina) in Cuba is the objective of Ms Cabarroi's PhD thesis. Research involves traditional comparative morphology and molecular systematics with interpretation of ecological and spatial data.
The poroid Hymenochaetaceae have been partially studied in Cuba during the seventies, but since then, the classification of the group changed due to novel insights obtained via molecular systematics. This necessitates an in depth revision of the species concepts that apply to the Cuban material. Next to taxonomic revision of Cuban material, the project also aims to explain the endemism and biogeography of the Caribbean poroids.
Training location: Mycothèque de l´Universite Catholique de Louvain (MUCL).
