Comparative sequencing of the chloroplast rps4 gene was used to reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships within the family Pottiaceae (Musci). The results confirm that Ephemerum spinulosum, Splachnobryum obtusum, Goniomitrium acuminatum and Cinclidotus fontinaloides are clearly positioned within the Pottiaceae and that Hypodontium dregei is not a member. At subfamily level, the data support the subfamily Pottioideae as being a monophyletic clade. The Trichostomoideae are probably paraphyletic… Expand

Molecular phylogeny of Trichostomoideae (Pottiaceae, Bryophyta) based on nrITS sequence data
TLDR
Bayesian analysis of an alignment of 83 nrITS sequences belonging to 66 taxa of Pottiaceae revealed representatives of subfamily Trichostomoideae in a well supported monophyletic lineage, including species of Tortella and Weissia, respectively. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the moss genus Pleurochaete Lindb. (Bryales: Pottiaceae) based on chloroplast and nuclear genomic markers
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the moss genus Pleurochaete was investigated using evidence from chloroplast and nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences, finding a neotropical origin of the genus, followed by long-distance dispersal of P. squarrosa into Eurasia and a further example for either lineage sorting or cryptic speciation in mosses. Expand
Partial generic revision of Barbula (Musci: Pottiaceae): Re-establishment of Hydrogonium and Streblotrichum, and the new genus Gymnobarbula
TLDR
A representative selection of species traditionally assigned to the genus Barbula is analysed, believed to represent the largest genus of the moss family Pottiaceae, but which recently was suggested to be polyphyletic. Expand
On the systematic position of the genus Timmiella (Dicranidae, Bryopsida) and its allied genera, with the description of a new family Timmiellaceae
TLDR
Reassessment of morphological characters suggests that a combination of the characters: 1) adaxially bulging and abaxially flat leaf surfaces, 2) sinistrorse or straight peristomes, when present, and 3) sinstrorsely arranged operculum cells is unique to Timmiellaceae and discriminates it from other haplolepideous moss families. Expand
A Systematic Revision of the Genus Erythrophyllopsis (Pottiaceae, Bryophyta)
TLDR
A denser sampling and the use of other phylogenetic markers are required to better understand the generic and suprageneric relationships of Erythrophyllopsis. Expand
Phylogeny and classification of the Grimmiaceae/Ptychomitriaceae complex (Bryophyta) inferred from cpDNA.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships within the Grimmiaceae/Ptychomitriaceae were studied using a plastid tRNA cluster, including four tRNAs, a fast evolving gene, four spacers separating the coding regions, as well as one group I intron, which identified several homoplastic inversions. Expand
The Scandinavian Syntrichia ruralis complex (Musci, Pottiaceae): a chaos of diversification
TLDR
The molecular evidence favours a wide circumscription of the S. ruralis complex, including the species around S. caninervis and some other ones but excluding S. princeps, and the morphological evidence suggests that these species are closely related. Expand
Taxonomy and Phylogeny of Andina (Pottiaceae, Bryophyta): a New Moss Genus from the Tropical Andes
TLDR
The molecular data suggest a close relationship of Andina to the genera Gertrudiella and Didymodon with which it shares a common ancestor. Expand
Triquetrella mxinwana, a new moss species from South Africa, with a phylogenetic and biogeographic hypothesis for the genus
TLDR
Triquetrella mxinwana is a new species presently known only from the winter rainfall area of South Africa and differs from other Triquetrella species in the several low, bifid, papillae on each laminal cell, but is similar to the Australian Leptodontium paradoxum, differing in size and anatomical details. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in the genus Hennediella (Pottiaceae, Bryophyta) inferred from nrITS sequence data
TLDR
The molecular data suggest that the core Hennediella is monophyletic only including Tortula platyphylla, although the affinities of two species (HennedIElla heteroloma and H. longipedunculata) are ambiguous. Expand

Patterns of relationships inTrichostomoideae (Pottiaceae, Musci)
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of sequence data shows close relationships between Pleurochaete, Tortella and Weissia, which would suggest that taxonomy in Pottiaceae does not depict the pattern of descent, and therefore is in need of revision. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships of the Wardiaceae (Musci); Evidence from 18s rRNA and rps4 Gene Sequences
TLDR
Parsimony analyses provide very strong support for the inclusion of Wardia among the haplolepideae, and in the rps4 and combined analyses, there is some support for a sister group relationship with Blindia (Seligeriaceae), in agreement with features of gametophyte and sporophyte morphology as well with habitat. 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
Testing morphological concepts of orders of pleurocarpous mosses (Bryophyta) using phylogenetic reconstructions based on TRNL-TRNF and RPS4 sequences.
TLDR
Estimates of levels of saturation suggest that the trnL-trnF spacer and the third codon position of the rps4 gene have reached saturation, in at least the transitions, and phylogenetic analyses suggest that mode of branching and reduced peristomes are homoplastic at the ordinal level in pleurocarpous mosses. 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
The Circumscription of the Dicranaceae (Bryopsida) Based on the Chloroplast Regions trnL—trnF and rps4
TLDR
Four clades form a robust monophyletic taxon, considered here as a restricted concept of Dicranaceae (sensu stricto), and this circumscription excludes 18 genera that have previously been included in the DICranaceae. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among the ciliate arthrodontous mosses: Evidence from chloroplast and nuclear DNA sequences
TLDR
These analyses indicate that the Splachnaceous and Orthotrichaceous peristomes have been independently derived from an ancestral ‘perfect’ bryoid peristome. Expand
Tortula and some related genera (Pottiaceae, Musci): phylogenetic relationships based on chloroplast rps4 sequences
Abstract. According to chloroplast rps4 sequence data the genus Syntrichia forms a monophyletic clade clearly separated from Tortula, while Pottia is shown to be polyphyletic and the RhynchostegiaeExpand
Phylogeny of the Plagiotheciaceae Based on Molecular and Morphological Evidence

TLDR
There is a dichotomy in the tree between the pooid group and the other grasses, in contradiction with other molecular phylogenies, where the bamboos appear first within the family. Expand
