Phylogeny of the Genus Cladonia s.lat. (Cladoniaceae, Ascomycetes) Inferred from Molecular, Morphological, and Chemical Data
Phylogenetic relationships within the genus Cladonia, including Cladina (Cladoniaceae, Lecanoromycetes), were reconstructed based upon simultaneous analyses of DNA sequences and morphological andExpand

A multigene phylogenetic synthesis for the class Lecanoromycetes (Ascomycota): 1307 fungi representing 1139 infrageneric taxa, 317 genera and 66 families.
The Lecanoromycetes is the largest class of lichenized Fungi, and one of the most species-rich classes in the kingdom. Here we provide a multigene phylogenetic synthesis (using three ribosomalExpand

Multiple origins of symbioses between ascomycetes and bryophytes suggested by a five‐gene phylogeny
Numerous species of microscopic fungi inhabit mosses and hepatics. They are severely overlooked and their identity and nutritional strategies are mostly unknown. Most of these bryosymbiotic fungiExpand

High cyanobiont selectivity of epiphytic lichens in old growth boreal forest of Finland.
Here, cyanobiont selectivity of epiphytic lichen species was examined in an old growth forest area in Finland. Samples of the eight lichen species were collected from the same aspen (Populus tremula)Expand

Monophyletic groups within the Parmeliaceae identified by ITS rDNA, β-tubulin and GAPDH sequences
Phylogenetic relationships within the Parmeliaceae are analysed cladistically on the basis of DNA characters from partial β-tubulin, partial glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) and ITSExpand

β-tubulin, ITS and group I intron sequences challenge the species pair concept in Physcia aipolia and P. caesia
Abstract ITS, group I intron and partial β-tubulin sequences were used to infer phylogenies of a putative lichen species pair: Physcia aipolia (sexual) and P. caesia (asexual). A jackknife treeExpand

Culture experiments and DNA sequence data confirm the identity of Lobaria photomorphs
Lichens consist of a fungal component that associates with either a green alga or cynobacterium, resulting in diverse morphologies. Resynthesis experiments of isolated myco- and photobionts, as wellExpand

Evolution of complex symbiotic relationships in a morphologically derived family of lichen-forming fungi.
We studied the evolutionary history of the Parmeliaceae (Lecanoromycetes, Ascomycota), one of the largest families of lichen-forming fungi with complex and variable morphologies, also includingExpand

Taxonomy of Bryoria Section Implexae (Parmeliaceae, Lecanoromycetes) in North America and Europe, Based on Chemical, Morphological and Molecular Data
Ninety-seven ingroup specimens of Bryoria section Implexae (Parmeliaceae, Lecanoromycetes) were studied using molecular, chemical, morphological and geographic characters. The molecular data includedExpand

Cladistic analysis of Echinodorus (Alismataceae): simultaneous analysis of molecular and morphological data
Echinodorus is the second largest genus in the aquatic plant family Alismataceae. The genus is naturally distributed in the New World, but many species are known world‐wide as popular aquariumExpand
