Bole bryophyte diversity and distribution patterns along three altitudinal gradients in Yunnan, China
QuestionWe investigated the bryophyte communities on tree boles along three altitudinal gradients located within different types of forested area to answer the following questions: (1) how many bole
Chloroplast phylogenomics of liverworts: a reappraisal of the backbone phylogeny of liverworts with emphasis on Ptilidiales
This study provides empirical evidence to support the significance of plastid genome sequencing to reconstruct the phylogeny of this important plant lineage, and suggests that the GC content has played a critical role in the evolutionary dynamics ofplastid genomes in land plants.
Exploring the plastid genome disparity of liverworts
The hypothesis that liverworts and other land plants inherited and conserved the plastome structure of their most recent algal ancestors is suggested.
Vertical gradient in bryophyte diversity and species composition in tropical and subtropical forests in Yunnan, SW China
Questions We sampled epiphytic bryophytes along the entire vertical gradient, from tree base to upper canopy, in tropical and subtropical forests in order to answer the following questions: (a) how
The differentiation and speciation of Scapania javanica and S. undulata complexes in the Eastern Sino-Himalayas and perimeters for Scapania Sect. Stephania (Scapaniaceae, Hepaticae)
Three taxa of Scapania with Sino-Himalayan and meta-Himalayan distribution are described as new to science: S. pseudojavanica from the southern portion of the eastern spur of the Tibetan Plateau in
Bole epiphytic bryophytes on Lithocarpus xylocarpus (Kurz) Markgr. in the Ailao Mountains, SW China
It is suggested that a period of perhaps much more than 110 years is necessary for the recovery of epiphytic bryoflora in montane forest of SW China, and that moisture-laden southwest trade winds and forest structure could differentiate microclimate and impel a distinct composition of epIPhytes in windward and leeward exposures.
Diplophyllum purpurascens (Scapaniaceae, Marchantiophyta)—a new species from Sino-Himalaya (China)
Diplophyllum purpurascens is described from the northern part of Yunnan Province in China based on the evidence obtained during an integrative study and probably belongs to the group of Sino-Himalayan liverworts—a very diverse, little understood complex of taxa.
A reassessment of the Asian moss genus Reimersia (Pottiaceae)
The genus Reimersia now contains two species endemic to Asia, and a careful review of cellular architecture across the lamina has now identified several character states that differ significantly between them.
New additions, range extensions and nomenclatural updates for the Hawaiian moss flora, island of Kauaʻi, USA
Fifty mosses are reported new for the island of Kauaʻi, and 16 species represent the first collection for the State of Hawai'i and are indicated by an asterisk (*).
