The affinities as well as the circumscription of the Orthotrichaceae (Bryopsida), one of the most diverse families of mosses, have been the focus of a controversy for much of the last century. We obtained rbcL sequences for 37 arthrodontous mosses, including 27 taxa of the Orthotrichales. The sequences were analyzed using maximum parsimony and neighbor joining in order to (1) test the monophyly of the Orthotrichales and the Orthotrichaceae; (2) determine their phylogenetic relationships; and (3… Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships Among the Diplolepideous-alternate Mosses (Bryidae) Inferred from Nuclear and Chloroplast DNA Sequences
TLDR
The phylogenetic hypothesis provides a context in which to infer evolutionary transitions in some key morphological characters relating to the peristome and the transition from the acrocarpous to pleurocarpous growth forms. Expand
The Bryophyta (Mosses): Systematic and Evolutionary Inferences from an rps4 Gene (cpDNA) Phylogeny.
TLDR
This hypothesis suggests that early in the evolution of the Arthrodonteae, two major lineages diverged, with opposite and alternate peristomes, respectively. Expand
Insights Into the Evolutionary History of the Subfamily Orthotrichoideae (Orthotrichaceae, Bryophyta): New and Former Supra-Specific Taxa So Far Obscured by Prevailing Homoplasy
TLDR
A dated molecular phylogenetic reconstruction at the subfamily level of Orthotrichoideae reveals that most of the characters previously used to separate genera and here tested are homoplastic, which has hindered the taxonomical and systematic proposals for decades. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships Within the Haplolepideous Mosses
TLDR
Mosses with haplolepideous peristomes form a major lineage within the arthrodontous taxa, the Dicranidae, and the monophyly of these groups is strongly supported, although relationships among the clades are ambiguous. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships Among Basal-most Arthrodontous Mosses with Special Emphasis on the Evolutionary Significance of the Funariineae
TLDR
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
Phylogenetic relationships of the Thuidiaceae and the non-monophyly of the Thuidiaceae and the Leskeaceae based on rbcL, rps4 and the rps4-trnS intergenic spacer
TLDR
The Rhytidiaceae (Rhytidium rugosum) was found sister to the clade of Thuidiaceae s.lat and Leskea polycarpa and may be of value for similar studies at family level in other pleurocarpous mosses. Expand
Ordinal Phylogeny within the Hypnobryalean Pleurocarpous Mosses Inferred from Cladistic Analyses of Three Chloroplast DNA Sequence Data Sets: trnL-F, rps4, and rbcL
TLDR
Phylogenetic reconstructions based on molecular data emphasize the need for a re-examination of the taxonomic relevance of morphological characters and corroborate previous interpretations of sporophytic morphological similarities as multiple transitions to similar solutions to epiphytism among the pleurocarps. Expand
Lewinskya, a New Genus to Accommodate the Phaneroporous and Monoicous Taxa of Orthotrichum (Bryophyta, Orthotrichaceae)
TLDR
The morphological and geographic circumscriptions of both genera are provided to define them accurately, and the generic name Lewinskya F.Lara, Garilleti & Goffinet is proposed for all the species included in the new genus Orthotrichum. Expand
The Paraphyly of Hypnodendron and the Phylogeny of Related Non-Hypnanaean Pleurocarpous Mosses Inferred from Chloroplast and Mitochondrial Sequence Data
TLDR
Based on morphological character state optimisation the hypnodendroid pleurocarps comprise a clade that includes plesiomorphically dendroid, palmate/umbellate terrestrial plants in addition to a number of derived lineages representing adaptive shifts towards epiphytism. Expand
Independent Origins of Cleistocarpy in the Splachnaceae: Analyses of cpDNA Sequences and Polyphyly of the Voitioideae (Bryophyta)
TLDR
The results resolve the Voitioideae (i.e., the genus Voitia) as nested within the Splachnoideae, and the phylogenetic significance of sporophytic characters within the family Splachnaceae is briefly discussed. Expand

The Circumscription and Phylogenetic Relationships of the Hedwigiaceae (Musci)
TLDR
The Hedwigiaceae are a group of plagiotropic mosses of uncertain relationships either with the Orthotrichales or the Isobryales, and some of the common problems and necessary assumptions in outgroup analysis are illustrated. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of the Papilionoideae (Family Leguminosae): RbcL Gene Sequences versus Chemical Taxonomy
TLDR
RbcL phylogeny is compared with profiles of alkaloids and other natural products and results indicate that secondary metabolite profiles, if compared with morphology or rbcL sequences, are of limited value as a taxonomic marker. Expand
Polyphyly of Arundinoideae (Poaceae): Evidence from rbcL Sequence Data
TLDR
Cladistic analyses indicate that Arundinoideae as presently circumscribed are paraphyletic, as lineages within this subfamily show affinities with all three of the other subfamilies. Expand
A Phylogenetic Analysis of Epilobium (Onagraceae) Based on Nuclear Ribosomal DNA Sequences
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny is compatible with some important independent characters and is useful for interpreting morphological and cytological evolution in Epilobium. Expand
A conspectus of the subfamily macromitrioideae (Bryopsida : Orthotrichaceae) in Southern Africa
TLDR
In southern Africa the subfamily Macromitrioideae (Orthotrichaceae) consists of eight genera, widely distributed in tropical, subtropical and southern temperate regions, and the most recent inclusive treatment of southern African taxa is that by Sim (1926). Expand
The Rhachitheciaceae : revised circumscription and ordinal affinities
TLDR
The genus Rhachitheciopsis is reinstated, and a new genus Zanderia is proposed to accomodate U. perpusillum, whereas Uleastrum nitidum is reduced to synonymy with U. palmicola and the circumscription and affinities of 27 genera accepted within the Orthotrichaceae have been examined. Expand

TLDR
The usefulness of comparative molecular studies as a potential source of independent data to test and refine the phylogenetic hypothesis of land plant relationships based on the bryophytes can be explored. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that cladistic analysis of molecular data can provide an independent data set for the study of bryophyte phylogeny, but the differences between the molecular and morphological results are a topic for further investigation. Expand
