Mosses of the Mediterranean, an Annotated Checklist
Abstract The names of all mosses published up to the end of August 2011 in the countries of the Mediterranean basin, the Macaronesian Islands and Bulgaria are compiled in an annotated checklist. The…
Abscisic-acid-induced drought tolerance in Funaria hygrometrica Hedw.
Three-week-old protonemata of Funaria hygrometrica Hedw. cultivated in Petri dishes tolerate slow drying (24 h to complete dryness) but not rapid drying (1h to complete dryness). Slowly dried mosses…
Molecular phylogeny of Pottiaceae (Musci) based on chloroplast rps4 sequence data
Comparative sequencing of the chloroplast rps4 gene was used to reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships within the family Pottiaceae (Musci). The results confirm that Ephemerum spinulosum,…
Molecular phylogeny of Trichostomoideae (Pottiaceae, Bryophyta) based on nrITS sequence data
Bayesian analysis of an alignment of 83 nrITS sequences belonging to 66 taxa of Pottiaceae revealed representatives of subfamily Trichostomoideae in a well supported monophyletic lineage, including species of Tortella and Weissia, respectively.
Aluminous granulites from the Pulur complex, NE Turkey: a case of partial melting, efficient melt extraction and crystallisation
Intercontinental Mediterranean disjunct mosses: morphological and molecular patterns.
Despite some evidence for differentiation between disjunct plants, no plausible mutation rate would date the divergence at ≥20 million years ago (MYA), as implied by the Madrean-Tethyan hypothesis, and recent long-distance dispersal is a more likely explanation for intercontinental disjunctions in these species.
Morphology, fine structure, life cycle and phylogenetic analysis of Phyllosiphon arisari, a siphonous parasitic green alga
The morphology of Phyllosiphon, as studied in field material and in culture; the fine structure, analysed by transmission electron microscopy; and phylogenetic relationships, inferred from DNA sequences are described.

The phylogenetic distribution of the inversion in the gene order supports a hypothesis only weakly supported by inferences from sequence data whereby Funariales are paraphyletic, with Funariaceae and Disceliaceae sharing a common ancestor with Encalyptales, and Gigaspermaceae sister to this combined clade.

It is suggested that an extensive sampling of individuals be made for recovering appropriate levels of the gene pool for ex situpreservation, however, translocation of individuals to the genetically weakened Bogarra population from other sources is not recommended.
Genetic variations and migration pathway of Juniperus thurifera L. (Cupressaceae) in the western Mediterranean region
Random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis and length variations in the chloroplast trnL-trnF intergenic spacer were used to analyze the geographic structure of Juniperus thurifera L. populations in Spain and North Africa and showed the existence of three population groups.
