Forty-six species of diverse land plants were investigated by sequencing for their intron content in the mitochondrial gene nad1. A total of seven introns, all belonging to group II, were found, and two were newly discovered in this study. All 13 liverworts examined contain no intron, the same condition as in green algae. Mosses and hornworts, however, share one intron by themselves and another one with vascular plants. These intron distribution patterns are consistent with the hypothesis that… CONTINUE READING
