HybPiper: Extracting coding sequence and introns for phylogenetics from high-throughput sequencing reads using target enrichment1
Premise of the study: Using sequence data generated via target enrichment for phylogenetics requires reassembly of high-throughput sequence reads into loci, presenting a number of bioinformaticsExpand

Moss diversity: A molecular phylogenetic analysis of genera
In this study we present phylogenetic and molecular phylogenetic diversity analyses of moss taxa from a total of 655 genera of mosses. Three loci were sampled: chloroplast ribosomal small protein 4,Expand

Phylogenetic Relationships among the Mosses Based on Heterogeneous Bayesian Analysis of Multiple Genes from Multiple Genomic Compartments
Abstract Nucleotide sequences from eight nuclear, chloroplast, and mitochondrial genes were obtained from 30 mosses (plus four outgroup liverworts) in order to resolve phylogenetic relationshipsExpand

Polarity of peatmoss (Sphagnum) evolution: who says bryophytes have no roots?
The class Sphagnopsida (Bryophyta) includes two genera: Ambuchanania and Sphagnum. Ambuchanania contains just one rare species known from two Tasmanian localities, but Sphagnum comprises a specioseExpand

Phylogenetic Relationships Within the Haplolepideous Mosses
Abstract Mosses with haplolepideous peristomes form a major lineage within the arthrodontous taxa, the Dicranidae. Relationships among lineages within the Dicranidae are explored using three cpDNAExpand

Biogeographic patterns and cryptic speciation in bryophytes
Bryophytes (mosses, liverworts, hornworts) typically have broad geographical distributions that span two or more continents. Many species show classic patterns of disjunction that are similar toExpand

The Bryophyta (Mosses): Systematic and Evolutionary Inferences from an rps4 Gene (cpDNA) Phylogeny.
Phylogenetic analyses of nucleotide and amino acid sequences of the chloroplast protein coding gene rps4 were performed for 225 species of mosses, representing 84% of families recognized by VittExpand

Peatmoss (Sphagnum) diversification associated with Miocene Northern Hemisphere climatic cooling?
Global climate changes sometimes spark biological radiations that can feed back to effect significant ecological impacts. Northern Hemisphere peatlands dominated by living and dead peatmossesExpand
