Biography

Emerson R. Pansarin is an expert in vegetal biology. He is a professor at the Sào Paulo University (USP) in southeastern Brazil. His main research interests are systematics, phylogenetic relationships (based on morphological and molecular characters), reproductive biology and pollination systems of members of the orchid family and other aquatic monocotyledons, such as Alismataceae and Limnocharitaceae. Among Orchidaceae Professor Pansarin has focused his investigations on the subfamily Vanilloideae. His current projects include the investigation of systematics, biogeography and evolution of pollination systems in Vanilloideae, taxonomic revision of the genus Epistephium and a floristic survey of Orchidaceae occurring in the interior of São Paulo state, Brazil.

Ludmila M. Pansarin is a Brazilian biologist and holds a Master in Botany. Currently she is a Ph.D. candidate in Campinas State University's Plant Biology program (São Paulo state, Brazil). Her main research interests include the investigation of reproductive biology, pollination systems and anatomy of secretory structures of orchid family members. Among Orchidaceae Ms. Pansarin has focused her investigations on Stanhopeinae, developing studies about the evolution of pollination systems among evolving members of this euglossine-pollinated subtribe. Furthermore, she has investigated the pollination and the reproductive biology of orchids pollinated by oil-collecting bees, such as Cyrtopodiinae and Oncidiinae, and has conducted a floristic survey of Orchidaceae occurring in the interior of São Paulo state, Brazil.
