to the Hornwort Portal
primary mission of this web site is to facilitate the dissemination
of data collected a number of researchers investigating various
aspects of hornwort biology. In particular this site includes
an overview of a collaborative research project between Dr. Renzaglia
(Southern Illinois University) and Dr. Duff (University of Akron)
and other researchers from around the world including Dr. Chris
Cargill from the Australian National Herbarium at the Center for
Plant Biodiversity Research (CANB).
goals of this collaborative project are to:
1) produce a molecular phylogeny of Anthocerotes, 2) produce
a new classification of hornworts at higher taxonomic levels 3)
investigate biogeographic and phylogeographic patterns among genera
and species of hornworts.

web site and the research projects described here are supported
by grants from the National
Science Foundation (DEB 0235919 and 0235985) to Dr. Joel Duff,
University of Akron and Dr. Renzaglia (Southern Illinois University).
This funded project is entitled: "Collaborative Research:
Biodiversity, Phylogeny and Biogeography of Hornworts"
