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 resurrectingExpand

Phylogeny of the Brachytheciaceae (Bryophyta) based on morphology and sequence level data
Brachytheciaceae is often considered a taxonomically difficult group of mosses. For example, morphological variation has led to difficulty in generic delimitation. We used DNA sequence dataExpand

Rhynchostegiella (Brachytheciaceae): molecular re-circumscription of a convenient taxonomic repository
Abstract The moss genus Rhynchostegiella (Helicodontioideae, Brachytheciaceae) has long served as a convenient repository for small brachythecioid pleurocarps. Its circumscription is revised in theExpand

Characterisation of the Chloroplast DNA psbT‐H Region and the Influence of Dyad Symmetrical Elements on Phylogenetic Reconstructions
: The tandemly arranged genes psbT, psbN, and psbH code for proteins of photosystem II and are located in the large single copy region (LSC) of the chloroplast genome, downstream of psbB. So far,Expand

Fine-scale spatial genetic structure of a liverwort (Barbilophozia attenuata) within a network of ant trails
Fine-scale spatial genetic structure (SGS) of the liverwort, Barbilophozia attenuata, occupying an area characterized by a network of ant trails, was investigated using microsatellite markers. ThisExpand

Phylogenetic analyses reveal high levels of polyphyly among pleurocarpous lineages as well as novel clades
Abstract Phylogenetic analyses of the Hypnales usually show the same picture of poorly resolved trees with a large number of polyphyletic taxa and low support for the few reconstructed clades. OneExpand

Molecular phylogenetics of the Meteoriaceae s. str.: focusing on the genera Meteorium and Papillaria.
In order to delimit and understand the evolution of the Meteoriaceae, we provide phylogenetic analyses using the internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) of nuclear ribosomal DNA in combination with twoExpand

And if Engler was Not Completely Wrong? Evidence for Multiple Evolutionary Origins in the Moss Flora of Macaronesia
The Macaronesian endemic flora has traditionally been interpreted as a relict of a subtropical element that spanned across Europe in the Tertiary. This hypothesis is revisited in the moss subfamilyExpand
