Morphometric and molecular analysis of two distinct forms of Pseudocrossidium crinitum

  title={Morphometric and molecular analysis of two distinct forms of Pseudocrossidium crinitum},
  author={J. Watson},
Two distinct forms of Pseudocrossidium crinitum (Bryophyta) exista form with a white hair point on the leaf, and one with a yellow hair point on the leaf. The white and yellow forms exist in similar areas, but the yellow hair point form is found on its own in arid areas. In this paper we analyse 16 morphometric variables and chloroplast and nuclear DNA molecular information to determine whether Pseudocrossidium crinitum should be separated into two species based on morphological differences. We… Expand
