Goal and objectives of the project Building a phylogenetic tree of Arisaema of the world, clarifying possible close relationships of members of Arisaema.
Main results

- Theoretical results:
+ Conducted field investigations and collected samples of Arisaema species in Vietnam to supplement and combine with existing data of the research team to have a more complete molecular data block for Arisaema around the world.
+ Building Arisaema's phylogenetic tree using molecular biology data. The analysis clarifies each phylogenetic relationship of the members in Arisaema.
+ The study clarifies the phylogenetic time and evolutionary history of the genus Arisaema.
- Applied results:
Is a database of species in the genus Arisaema in Vietnam and around the world to use for further research by scientists.

Novelty and actuality and scientific meaningfulness of the results - Information on the distribution of Arisaema species in Vietnam.
- Arisaema's origin in the world and in Vietnam.
- Adding new results on the evolutionary history of the genus Arisaema in the world and in Vietnam.
