A taxonomic study of Syntrichia laevipila and S. pagorum has been carried out. A morphological description and distribution data of S. laevipila are provided. Three lectotypes for Syntrichia laevipila, Barbula laevipila var. meridionalis and Tortula laevipilaeformis are proposed. After studying the type material of the S. laevipila and S. pagorum complex and samples from numerous localities throughout the world, we conclude that S. laevipila and S. pagorum are the same taxon and that the… Expand

Propagula and shoots of Syntrichia pagorum (Pottiaceae) exhibit different ecological strategies of desiccation tolerance
It is shown for the first time that cultured, dehardened adult shoots and propagula of a bryophyte are inherently CDT at an equilibrating RH of 50%, and rate of drying has a greater effect on rehydrated plant health than equilbrating RH. Expand

Tortula in North America North of Mexico
Although Tortula leucostoma is not even mentioned in such standard works on American bryology as Lesquereux and James "Manual" ( 1884) or Macoun's "Catalogue of Canadian Plants" (1892), it is nevertheless one of the first species of Musci to be described from Arctic America. Expand
