The problem of relationships among the major basal living groups of land plants is long standing, yet the uncertainty as to the phylogenetic affinity of these lines persists in the literature. Molecular and modern cladistic studies of the phylogenetic relationships of the above groups resulted in a large number of conflicting topologies. However, with the exception of the cladistic analyses of spermatogenesis, suggesting monophyly of extant bryophytes, these studies agree the paraphyletic… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

The mitochondrial phylogeny of land plants shows support for Setaphyta under composition-heterogeneous substitution models
TLDR
Recon reconstructing the mitochondrial land plant phylogeny from a newly compiled data set demonstrates partial congruence with current hypotheses based on nuclear and chloroplast genome data, and provides further incentive for revision of how plants arose on land. Expand
The Interrelationships of Land Plants and the Nature of the Ancestral Embryophyte
TLDR
The results imply that the ancestral embryophyte was more complex than has been envisaged, which requires many phenotypic character losses and transformations in the liverwort lineage, diminishes inconsistency between phylogeny and the fossil record, and prompts re-evaluation of the phylogenetic affinity of early land plant fossils. Expand
Land Plant Molecular Phylogenetics: A Review with Comments on Evaluating Incongruence Among Phylogenies
TLDR
The molecular phylogenetic evidence for relationships is reviewed and evaluated and it is concluded that the two better-supported hypotheses are, firstly, that the bryophytes are a monophyletic group, and secondly, and less likely, that a lineage consisting of liverworts and mosses branched first among land plants with the hornworts the most-closely related lineage to tracheophytes.

Phylogeny and evolution of charophytic algae and land plants
Charophytic algae and land plants together make up a monophyletic group, streptophytes, which represents one of the main lineages of multicellular eukaryotes and has contributed greatly to the changeExpand
Phylogeny and evolution of charophytic algae and land plants
TLDR
P phylogenetic results will facilitate evolutionary developmental studies of these key traits of the plant life cycle, multicellularity, and gravitropism, which will help to gain mechanistic understanding on how plants adapted to environmental challenges when they colonized the land during one of the major transitions in evolution of life.

The deepest divergences in land plants inferred from phylogenomic evidence

  • 2006
TLDR
It is shown here that densely sampled taxon trees built with multiple genes provide an indispensable test of taxon-sparse trees inferred from genome sequences. Expand
Organellomic data sets confirm a cryptic consensus on (unrooted) land-plant relationships and provide new insights into bryophyte molecular evolution.
TLDR
A common unrooted tree underlies embryophyte phylogeny, [(liverworts, mosses), (hornwort, vascular plants)]; rooting inconsistency across studies likely reflects substantial distance to algal outgroups. Expand
Large-Scale Phylogenomic Analyses Reveal the Monophyly of Bryophytes and Neoproterozoic Origin of Land Plants
TLDR
The monophyly of bryophytes is resolved by improving taxon sampling of hornworts and eliminating the effect of synonymous substitutions, and it is estimated that land plants originated in the Precambrian (980–682 Ma), much older than widely recognized. Expand
Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from sequences of four mitochondrial genes
TLDR
A mitochondrial gene‐based angiosperm phylogeny is reconstructed in a maximum likelihood analysis of sequences of four mitochondrial genes, atp1, matR, nad5, and rps3 from 380 species that represent 376 genera and 296 families of seed plants to reconstruct the underlying organismal phylogeny. Expand
Phylotranscriptomic analysis of the origin and early diversification of land plants
TLDR
Strong and robust support is found for a sister-group relationship between land plants and one group of streptophyte green algae, the Zygnematophyceae, and suggests that phylogenetic hypotheses used to understand the evolution of fundamental plant traits should be reevaluated. Expand

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

The phylogeny of land plants: A cladistic analysis based on male gametogenesis
TLDR
Longer treelengths are required to produce tree topologies in which either lycophytes are monophyletic or to reconstruct the paraphyletic bryophyte phylogeny of recent authors, and provides new insight into land plant evolution. Expand
Chloroplast phylogeny indicates that bryophytes are monophyletic.
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses using 51 genes from the entire chloroplast genome sequences of 20 representative green plant species indicated that extant bryophytes form a monophyletic group with high statistical confidence and that extantBryophyte monophytes are likely sisters to extant vascular plants, although the support for monophy letic vascular plants was not strong.

The chloroplast genome of Nymphaea alba: whole-genome analyses and the problem of identifying the most basal angiosperm.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of the chloroplast DNA of Nymphaea alba revealed consistent support for Nympholia being a divergent member of a monophyletic dicot assemblage and observations suggesting that the monocot lineage leading to the grasses has the strongest phylogenetic affinity to gymnosperms have general implications for studies of substitution model specification and analyses of concatenated genome data.

This study represents the first use of mitochondrial 19S rDNA for phylogenetic purposes and it appears well-suited for examining intermediate to deep evolutionary relationships among embryophytes. Expand

TLDR
It is argued here that the pattern of appearance and diversification of plant megafossils owes more to changing geological conditions than to rapid biological diversification. Expand
The gain of three mitochondrial introns identifies liverworts as the earliest land plants
The first evidence for the emergence of land plants (embryophytes) consists of mid-Ordovician spore tetrads (∼476 Myr old),. The identity of the early plants that produced these spores is unclear;Expand
Vegetative and reproductive innovations of early land plants: implications for a unified phylogeny.
TLDR
Development and structural innovations suggest the three bryophyte groups diverged prior to elaboration of this generation, and phylogenetic analysis of three different data sets is the most comprehensive to date and points to a single phylogenetic solution for the evolution of basal embryophytes.

TLDR
In the ML tree of deduced amino acid sequences of the plastid genes, hornworts were basal among the land plants, while mosses and liverworts each formed a clade and were sister to each other. Expand
