Phylogeny and evolution of Dyckia (Bromeliaceae) inferred from chloroplast and nuclear sequences
The genus Dyckia (Bromeliaceae) comprises more than 150 terrestrial or epilithic species with a strongly xeromorphic habit. Most of its members belong to the azonal rock vegetation of NeotropicalExpand

Phylogenetics of Pitcairnioideae s.s. (Bromeliaceae): evidence from nuclear and plastid DNA sequence data
According to recent taxonomic treatments, Bromeliaceae subfamily Pitcairnioideae comprise the genera Deuterocohnia, Dyckia, Encholirium, Fosterella and Pitcairnia. We present a dated molecularExpand

Development of 15 nuclear microsatellite markers in the genus Dyckia (Pitcairnioideae; Bromeliaceae) using 454 pyrosequencing
The genus Dyckia (Bromeliaceae) comprises 147 species that are distributed in Brazil and adjacent countries. Many species are rare and narrow endemics. We used 454 pyrosequencing to isolate 1,587Expand

A set of plastid microsatellite loci for the genus Dyckia (Bromeliaceae) derived from 454 pyrosequencing.
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Phylogeographical analyses of Dyckia (Bromeliaceae) suffer from low levels of sequence variation. Plastid microsatellite markers were developed to achieve aExpand

The Silver Ghost of Serra do Lenheiro: Dyckia mezii, nom. nov. (Bromeliaceae)
Dyckia mezii Krapp nom. nov. replaces D. argentea Mez 1894, which is a younger homonym of D. argentea G. Nicholson 1885 and therefore an illegitimate name.
