The Palm Phylogeny Working Group (PPWG) is an informal network of scientists doing molecular phylogenetic studies in palms. Most of us work on specific parts of the palm family or certain geographic regions, but we all share the goal of eventually resolving the palm family tree at the species level. Thus, we founded the PPWG at the World Palm Symposium 2015 in Quindio, Colombia, as a forum for exchanging ideas and experiences, co-ordinating our efforts, sharing samples, and ensuring compatibility of the data we generate.
