Our graduate program in Botany has three main lines of research:

1) Taxonomic, Evolutionary and Phytogeographic Botany: Morphoanatomical, taxonomic, phylogenetic and phytogeographic studies. Studies on plant diversity patterns at multiple scales, biological interactions, ecology and evolution of plant species.

2) Structural and Functional Botany: Studies of plant organs and tissues and the interrelationships between structure and function at different levels of biological organization. Functioning of organisms and their interactions with the environment.

3) Applied and Biotechnological Botany: Studies and development of biotechnologies based on basic knowledge of flora. The relationship between the use of species and society. Management and sustainable use of flora.
