Influence of biological and social-historical variables on the time taken to describe an angiosperm.
Premise of the Study
By convention, scientific naming of angiosperm species began in 1753; it is estimated that 10–20% of species remain undescribed. To complete this task before rare, undescribed species go extinct, a better understanding of the description process is needed. The South American Cerrado biodiversity hotspot was considered a suitable model due to a high diversity of plants, habitats, and social history of species description.
