Dissertation research

I am studying waterworts (genus Elatine L. from waterworts family (scientific name: Elatinaceae) for my PhD dissertation. Elatinaceae Dumortier are a family of aquatic plants in the order Malpighiales and comprise about 50 species worldwide . These are cosmopolitan aquatic plants, which grow in both northern and southern hemispheres from temperate to tropical zones; however, the greatest diversity of the family is in temperate zones . Most species of the family are annual herbs, although a few species are small perennial shrubs. Tucker (1986) described the general morphology of the family as follows: herbaceous or suffrutescent, annual or perennial plants, which are found in aquatic or moist terrestrial habitats. Elatinaceae include two fairly species-rich genera: Elatine L. (common name: waterworts) with about 25 species and Bergia L. (common name: bergia) with 20 to 25 species.
