World checklist of hornworts and liverworts
TLDR
The first-ever worldwide checklist for liverworts and hornworts is presented that includes 7486 species in 398 genera representing 92 families from the two phyla, providing a valuable tool for taxonomists and systematists, analyzing phytogeographic and diversity patterns, aiding in the assessment of floristic and taxonomic knowledge, and identifying geographical gaps.

Newly resolved relationships in an early land plant lineage: Bryophyta class Sphagnopsida (peat mosses).
TLDR
The Sphagnopsida are an old lineage within the phylum Bryophyta, but the extant species of Sphagnum represent a relatively recent radiation, and it is likely that additional species critical to understanding the evolution of peat mosses await discovery, especially in the southern hemisphere. Expand
Epiphyte diversity and biomass loads of canopy emergent trees in Chilean temperate rain forests: A neglected functional component
TLDR
Based on this evidence, epiphytes may play key but generally neglected roles in ecosystem carbon uptake, water storage, and nutrient cycling, and forest management should recognize large trees as significant management units for the preservation of biodiversity and ecological functions. Expand
Isoenzymes of manganese-dependent peroxidase and laccase produced by the lignin-degrading basidiomycete Ceriporiopsis subvermispora.
TLDR
The white-rot basidiomycete Ceriporiopsis subvermispora produces two families of ligninolytic enzymes, namely manganese-dependent peroxidases (MnPs) and laccases, when growing in liquid cultures of defined composition and the isoenzyme pattern of MnP is not altered throughout the growth period of the fungus. Expand
Molecular Species Delimitation in the Racomitrium canescens Complex (Grimmiaceae) and Implications for DNA Barcoding of Species Complexes in Mosses
TLDR
The present molecular data do not support the division of the R. canescens complex into two groups of species and ITS1 provided the highest species discrimination capacity and should be considered as a DNA barcoding marker for mosses, especially in complexes of closely related species. Expand
Species delimitation and biogeography of a southern hemisphere liverwort clade, Frullania subgenus Microfrullania (Frullaniaceae, Marchantiophyta).
TLDR
An important role of long-distance dispersal in establishing phylogeographic patterns of extant species is document and a backbone phylogeny for the subgenus Microfrullania is proposed, providing insight into evolution of morphological patterns and establishing the basis for an improved sectional classification of species within Microfruckania.

SERRA DO CURICURIARI, AMAZONAS STATE, BRAZIL: THE FIRST BRYOFLORISTIC ANALYSIS FOR A BRAZILIAN MOUNTAIN IN THE AMAZONIAN FOREST
TLDR
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. Expand
The mosses (Bryophyta) of Capitán Prat Province, Aisén Region, southern Chile
TLDR
A total of 260 moss taxa are reported for Capitán Prat province, corresponding to 256 species and four infraspecific taxa, of which 211 are new records for the province, 54 are new for Aisén Region, and two are new record for continental Chile. Expand
Properties of laccase isoenzymes produced by the basidiomycete Ceriporiopsis subvermispora
TLDR
The amino‐terminal sequences (24 residues) of three isoenzymes isolated from rich medium were determined, and the consensus sequence reveals clear homology with laccases from other microorganisms. Expand
Oxidation reactions catalyzed by manganese peroxidase isoenzymes from Ceriporiopsis subvermispora
TLDR
MnPs from this fungus are able to oxidize kojic acid without externally added hydrogen peroxide, indicating that they can also act as oxidases in this reaction, however, the requirement for Mn(II) is absolute. Expand
