Bryophytes diversity in Brazil
Most endangered species are restricted to the Atlantic Rainforest of southeastern Brazil, which is the diversity and endemism centre for mosses and liverworts.
Towards a monophyletic classification of Lejeuneaceae IV: reinstatement of Allorgella, transfer of Microlejeunea aphanella to Vitalianthus and refinements of the subtribal classification
Using sequences of two chloroplast regions and the nuclear ribosomal ITS region of several critical taxa to explore their phylogenetic position, selected morphological characters on the reconstructed phylogenetic hypothesis are mapped to demonstrate the importance of subgynoecial innovations and ocelli for the circumscription of genera and subtribes of Lejeuneeae.
Synopsis of the Brazilian moss flora: checklist, distribution and conservation
This book aims to provide a history ofBotânica and its role in the development of modern medicine, as well as to inspire a new generation of scientists and researchers to tackle the challenges of sustainability and natural resources management.
Geographical structure, narrow species ranges, and Cenozoic diversification in a pantropical clade of epiphyllous leafy liverworts
The clear geographic structure of the Leptolejeunea crown group points to evolutionary processes including rare long‐distance dispersal and subsequent speciation.
SERRA DO CURICURIARI, AMAZONAS STATE, BRAZIL: THE FIRST BRYOFLORISTIC ANALYSIS FOR A BRAZILIAN MOUNTAIN IN THE AMAZONIAN FOREST
The results represent an increase in knowledge of the Brazilian bryoflora, being relevant for the conservation of bryophyte diversity in the Amazon Forest, and representing a contribution toward the targets of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation.
Paraíba State, Brazil: a hotspot of bryophytes
The present study identified deficits in collection efforts, especially in drier areas, and identified six species (not included in the Brazilian Red List) that require attention from a conservation viewpoint due to their rare distributions.
Survey of bryophytes in Serra da Canastra National Park, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Serra da Canastra National Park is located in southwestern Minas Gerais State and contains several phytophysiognomies of the Brazilian Cerrado. To date, no study on bryophytes has been conducted in…

The derived liverwort Leiolejeunea grandiflora was recollected at the type locality in Jamaica after more than 100 years and the characteristics of its oil bodies were described for the first time based on the new collections, and a wide genus concept for CheilolejeuneA is proposed to avoid nomenclatural confusion.
