Eve Lucas


Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, UK

I study the taxonomy, systematics, biogeography, evolution and conservation of the guava family (Myrtaceae) with a focus on the fleshy-fruited tribes Myrteae and Syzygieae. Myrteae is predominantly Neotropical and includes the hyper-diverse genera Myrcia s.l. and Eugenia; I have particular interest in the former.  I also have interests in the ecology, evolution and conservation of tropical forests. I am based at the herbarium of the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew where I also serve on the editorial boards of Flora of the Guianas and Kew Bulletin, and am an occasional editor of Phytotaxa.
