Unraveling the evolutionary history of the liverworts (Marchantiophyta): multiple taxa, genomes and analyses
Abstract Nucleotide sequence data from three chloroplast genes (rbcL, rps4 and psbA), one nuclear gene (the ribosomal LSU) and one mitochondrial gene (nad5) were assembled for 173 species in 117Expand

Morphology and classification of the Marchantiophyta
Introduction Like other bryophytes, liverworts are small, herbaceous plants of terrestrial ecosystems. They share, with the mosses and hornworts, a heteromorphic life cycle in which the sporophyte isExpand

World checklist of hornworts and liverworts
Abstract A working checklist of accepted taxa worldwide is vital in achieving the goal of developing an online flora of all known plants by 2020 as part of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation.Expand

Divergence times and the evolution of morphological complexity in an early land plant lineage (Marchantiopsida) with a slow molecular rate.
We present a complete generic-level phylogeny of the complex thalloid liverworts, a lineage that includes the model system Marchantia polymorpha. The complex thalloids are remarkable for their slowExpand

Extant diversity of bryophytes emerged from successive post-Mesozoic diversification bursts.
Unraveling the macroevolutionary history of bryophytes, which arose soon after the origin of land plants but exhibit substantially lower species richness than the more recently derived angiosperms,Expand

Horizontal transfer of an adaptive chimeric photoreceptor from bryophytes to ferns
Significance Despite being one of the oldest groups of land plants, the majority of living ferns resulted from a relatively recent diversification following the rise of angiosperms. To exploit fullyExpand

Evolutionary trends in the simple thalloid liverworts (Marchantiophyta, Jungermanniopsida subclass Metzgeriidae)
The phylogenetic history of and evolutionary trends within the simple thalloid liverworts (Jungermanniopsida, subclass Metzgeriidae) are reconstructed in a combined analysis of molecular andExpand
