Bryophyte Biology: Morphology, anatomy, and classification of the Bryophyta
Introduction With approximately 13 000 species, the Bryophyta compose the second most diverse phylum of land plants. Mosses share with the Marchantiophyta and Anthocerotophyta a haplodiplobiontic… Expand
Systematics of the Bryophyta (mosses) : from molecules to a revised classification
Newly resolved relationships in an early land plant lineage: Bryophyta class Sphagnopsida (peat mosses).
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY The Sphagnopsida, an early-diverging lineage of mosses (phylum Bryophyta), are morphologically and ecologically unique and have profound impacts on global climate.… Expand
Novel Relationships in Pleurocarpous Mosses as Revealed by cpDNA Sequences
Abstract As a result of a project using two chloroplast loci, the trnL-trnF region and the rps4 gene, to test the monophyly of pleurocarpous mosses as a group and the traditional three orders… Expand
Introduction to Bryology
- W. Buck
Introduction To Bryology Leading bryologist W. B. Schofield gives a broad, international view of bryology that goes beyond a basic understanding of structure to present the bryophytes as a vital… Expand
The lichens of Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park, Florida: Proceedings from the 18th Tuckerman Workshop
Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park is located in Collier County at the extreme southwestern corner of Florida, close to Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve. The 18th… Expand
Testing morphological concepts of orders of pleurocarpous mosses (Bryophyta) using phylogenetic reconstructions based on TRNL-TRNF and RPS4 sequences.
The ordinal classification of pleurocarpous mosses rests on characters such as branching mode and architecture of the peristome teeth that line the mouth of the capsule. The Leucodontales comprise… Expand

Abstract Pleurocarpous mosses, characterized by lateral female gametangia and highly branched, interwoven stems, comprise three orders and some 5000 species, or almost half of all moss diversity.… Expand
Ordinal Phylogeny within the Hypnobryalean Pleurocarpous Mosses Inferred from Cladistic Analyses of Three Chloroplast DNA Sequence Data Sets: trnL-F, rps4, and rbcL
Abstract Classification of families of hypnobryalean mosses into the Hypnales, Leucodontales, and Hookeriales has been taxonomically difficult. Several researchers have sequenced different genes for… Expand
