Checklist of mosses of East Europe and North Asia
Brachytheciaceae (Bryophyta) – a family of sibling genera
Check-list of mosses of the former USSR
The list includes 59 families, 269 genera, 1172 species and 75 infraspecific taxa of mosses, those are known for the territory of the former USSR. Among these 44 species and 1 variety are considered…

The calibrated phylogeny indicates that Homalothecium has undergone a fast radiation during the last 4 Myr, which is consistent with the low levels of morphological divergence among sibling species, and suggests that species distributions result from rare instances of dispersal and subsequent sympatric diversification.
On resurrection of the families Pseudoleskeaceae Schimp. and Pylaisiaceae Schimp. (Musci, Hypnales)
Results from our analysis of chloroplast trnL-trnF and nuclear ITS1 and ITS2 sequence data and 35 morphological characters for 134 taxa of pleurocarpous mosses provide an evidence for resurrecting…
Bryophyte flora of Altai Mountains. VII. Hypnaceae and related pleurocarps with bi- or ecostate leaves
Phylogeny of the Brachytheciaceae (Bryophyta) based on morphology and sequence level data
This study revealed some new generic relationships within the Brachytheciaceae, which are discussed in light of the morphological characters traditionally used for generic delimitation.
Dating the diversification of pleurocarpous mosses
The hypothesis that pleurocarpous mosses evolved toexploit the angiosperm forests is modified — pleurodynamic mosses diversified in the same time frame as the early angiosperms and the recovered pattern suggests a putative correlation of thesediversification events.
Phylogenetic position and delimitation of the moss family Plagiotheciaceae in the order Hypnales
Ancestral state reconstruction for eight morphological characters reveals that many characters used to delimit the family, such as a lack of pseudoparaphyllia and rhizoids inserted in the leaf axils, were already present in the ancestor of Hypnales.
On the leaf development in Palaeozoic mosses of the order Protosphagnales

- Environmental Science
Upper Palaeozoic mosses of the order Protosphagnales are studied for their leaf development and found to be quite different from modern mosses. In the latter, the small actively dividing cells occur…
