Notes on Early Land Plants Today
TLDR
The adoption of the GSPC as part of the Convention on Biological Diversity has reinforced the urgent need for a global plant checklist to support, facilitate and monitor the conservation and sustainable use of plant diversity worldwide. Expand
Three modes of heterochrony explain lobule diversity in Radula subgenus Cladoradula (Porellales: Jungermanniopsida), a small lineage of early land plants today
TLDR
Changes in lobule morphology in Radula subgenus Cladoradula show liverworts have the capacity for dramatic, relatively rapid morphological change by heterochrony, and hypermorphosis in lobules ontogeny could be a by-product of the longer growth durations required to build axes sufficiently large to perform this structural role.

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
Goodbye or welcome Gondwana? – insights into the phylogenetic biogeography of the leafy liverwort Plagiochila with a description of Proskauera, gen. nov. (Plagiochilaceae, Jungermanniales)
TLDR
The results indicate that the current distribution of Plagiochilaceae cannot be explained exclusively by Gondwanan vicariance, and a more feasible explanation of the range is a combination of short distance dispersal, rare long distance disperseal events, extinction, recolonization and diversification. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships and Morphological Evolution in a Major Clade of Leafy Liverworts (Phylum Marchantiophyta, Order Jungermanniales): Suborder Jungermanniineae
TLDR
The first comprehensive molecular phylogeny of this geographically widespread suborder is provided, using sequences generated from one nuclear, two mitochondrial, and seven plastid loci, sampled from 279 accessions representing 163 species in 57 genera. Expand
Notes on Early Land Plants Today. 36. Generic treatment of Lophocoleaceae (Marchantiophyta)
TLDR
Connati is elevated to generic rank to which the new name Cryptolophocolesa is applied, and Lophocolea, Pachyglossa and ClasmatocoleA are recognized as distinct genera. Expand
A special issue of Phytotaxa dedicated to Bryophytes: The closest living relatives of early land plants
This special volume is dedicated to Bryophytes. It includes an editorial plus 13 chapters. All papers are for open access.
Checklist of hornworts and liverworts of Fiji
TLDR
The first checklist of liverworts and hornworts is provided for the Republic of Fiji, and a number of the taxa presented here may be synonyms of other taxa as they are poorly known taxonomically. Expand
Early Land Plants Today: Taxonomy, systematics and nomenclature of Gymnomitriaceae
TLDR
This work provides the first synthesis of the taxonomy, systematics, and nomenclature of the family Gymnomitriaceae, and proposes 149 new synonyms, 102 of them for validly published names. Expand
