Towards a natural classification of liverworts (Marchantiophyta) based on the chloroplast gene rbcL
Maximum likelihood analysis of 212 rbcL sequences leads to a robust phylogeny of liverworts. Our results indicate a subdivision of Marchantiophyta into three well sup- ported classes assigned asExpand

Unravelling the phylogeny of Lejeuneaceae (Jungermanniopsida): evidence for four main lineages.
With about 1000 species in approximately 90 genera, Lejeuneaceae are the largest family of liverworts and make up a large and important part of cryptogamic diversity in the humid tropics. MaximumExpand

Evolution of leafy liverworts (Jungermanniidae, Marchantiophyta) : estimating divergence times from chloroplast DNA sequences using penalized likelihood with integrated fossil evidence
Based on chloroplast DNA sequences we develop a phylogenetic hypothesis of the diversification of liverworts (Marchantiophyta) with an extant diversity of about 6,000 species. Divergence timeExpand

Combining nested PCR and restriction digest of the internal transcribed spacer region to characterize arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on roots from the field
Identification of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) on roots is almost impossible with morphological methods and, due to the presence of contaminating fungi, it is also difficult with molecularExpand

Origin and subdivision of Plagiochila (Jungermanniidae: Plagiochilaceae) in tropical Africa based on evidence from nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequences and morphology
Maximum likelihood analyses based on the internal transcribed spacer region of nuclear ribosomal DNA and the chloroplast protein coding gene rps4 were conducted to investigate phylogeneticExpand

DNA taxonomy, cryptic speciation and diversification of the Neotropical-African liverwort, Marchesinia brachiata (Lejeuneaceae, Porellales).
The Neotropical-African liverwort Marchesinia brachiata has long been regarded as a polymorphic species. This hypothesis is examined using a dataset including sequences of the nuclear internalExpand

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

Amber fossils of sooty moulds
Sooty moulds are saprophytic ascomycetes with brown hyphae, often forming extensive subicula on living plant surfaces. These fungi growon plant exudates and honeydewsecreted by sap sucking insectsExpand
