In vitro cultivation of bryophytes: a review of practicalities, problems, progress and promise
Abstract In vitro cultivation is not only essential for the use of bryophytes in cellular, developmental and molecular research but is also vital to the elucidation of the roles of juvenile stages inExpand
Phylogenetic inferences in the dung-moss family Splachnaceae from analyses of cpDNA sequence data and implications for the evolution of entomophily.
Reconstruction of shifts between wind and insect spore dispersal syndromes suggests that entomophily arose more than once and may have been followed by a reversal to the generalist strategy in two lineages. Expand
Genetic diversity in populations of Sphagnum capillifolium from the mountains of Bulgaria, and their possible refugial role
Investigation of genetic diversity in eight populations of Sphagnum capillifolium from different Bulgarian mountains found high levels of allelic diversity, which suggest a high degree of isolation and restricted gene flow between populations, which is consistent with generally small and scattered populations.

Phylogenetic Relationships Among Basal-most Arthrodontous Mosses with Special Emphasis on the Evolutionary Significance of the Funariineae
It is suggested that taxa with reduced or no peristomes, such as the Disceliaceae and the Gigaspermaceae, may be crucial in resolving the early evolutionary history of the Arthrodonteae when using DNA sequences. Expand
