A DNA barcode for land plants
DNA barcoding involves sequencing a standard region of DNA as a tool for species identification. However, there has been no agreement on which region(s) should be used for barcoding land plants. ToExpand

Selecting barcoding loci for plants: evaluation of seven candidate loci with species‐level sampling in three divergent groups of land plants
There has been considerable debate, but little consensus regarding locus choice for DNA barcoding land plants. This is partly attributable to a shortage of comparable data from all proposed candidateExpand

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

An annotated check-list of the Hepaticae and Anthocerotae of Europe and Macaronesia
Abstract In Europe and Macaronesia 453 species of Hepaticae (Marchantiopsida, Liverworts) are recognized; 33 of these are confined to Macaronesia. The total species complement is assigned to 105Expand

A phylogeny of Porella (Porellaceae, Jungermanniopsida) based on nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequences.
The cosmopolitan family Porellaceae includes about 60 species in two or three genera: the large genus Porella and the monospecific Ascidiota and Macvicaria (alternatively Porella subg. Macvicaria).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
