It is shown here that densely sampled taxon trees built with multiple genes provide an indispensable test of taxon-sparse trees inferred from genome sequences. Expand
The Liverworts, Mosses and Ferns of Europe
Vegetative reproduction and clonal diversity in Rhytidium rugosum (Rhytidiaceae, Bryopsida) inferred by morpho-anatomical and molecular analyses
The AFLP analysis revealed close relationships of the plot samples, which suggest a clonal rather than generative (sexual) origin of the population, and also revealed three clones from the two plots, thus proving dispersal of vegetative diaspores. Expand
Molecular circumscription of the hornworts (Anthocerotophyta) based on the chloroplast DNA trnL–trnF region
The molecular data support the hornworts as representing an independent land plant lineage (Anthocerotophyta) and it is rather unlikely that bryophytes are monophyletic in their traditional circumscription, i.e. comprising hornwort, mosses and liverworts. Expand
Chloroplast DNA-relationship in palaeoaustralLopidium concinnum (Hypopterygiaceae, Musci). An example of stenoevolution in mosses Studies in austral temperate rain forest bryophytes 2
Molecular data support the idea of an old Gondwanan relict species of stenoevolutionary character and ecological data on short-range dispersal strengthen this assessment. Expand
The gametophyte-sporophyte junction: unequivocal hints for two evolutionary lines of archegoniate land plants
Summary New results have added to our knowledge about the gametophyte-sporophyte junction in bryophytes, hornworts and pteridophytes and its significance for archegoniate land plant evolution.Expand
