Dr. Douglas Daly is Director of the Institute of Systematic Botany, Curator of the New YorkBotanical Garden Herbarium, New York (USA), is currently the most experienced researcher on the family Burseraceae and key specialist on the family Anacardiaceae. In the last decades, Dr. Daly has authored (or co-authored) most of scientific publications on Burseraceae, and more recently he has also been studying the Anacardiaceae family. Additionally, Dr. Daly has been studying the Brazilian (specially the Amazonian) flora since late seventies (he was the PI of the "Flora do Acre" project and is now starting the "Flora de Rondônia"). Thus, Dr. Daly's participation as a Visiting Researcher associated to the Sapindales Thematic Grant, in which this proposal is included aims at 1) updating the identifications of Burseraceae and (specific genera of) Anacardiaceae collections of major Brazilian herbaria with significant collections of the these families; 2) Teaching a graduate course (at the host institution) and lecturing at the institutions visited; 3) collaborating in the supervision of grad students on the Burseraceae and Anacardiaceae families; 4) collaborating in the new tribal classification for the family Burseraceae; 5) participating in the project "World Sapindales: diversity, evolution, and key innovations" (to be submmitted to the BIOTA-FAPESP/Dimensions-NSF call); 6) collaborating in new proposals to be submitted to international funding agencies and, therefore, in the strengthening of the local research groupthrough the international partnership.
