Abstract The classification of the Bryopsida (mosses) has been based primarily on the variation of sporophytic characters i.e., architectural features of the peristome teeth that line the capsule mouth. Five arthrodontous peristome types have been recognized. Whether peristome types define natural groups and how they are evolutionary related has, however, remained unclear. Nucleotide sequence data from one nuclear and two chloroplast loci are generated and compiled to test two contrasting… 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
Phylogenetic inference rejects sporophyte based classification of the Funariaceae (Bryophyta): rapid radiation suggests rampant homoplasy in sporophyte evolution.
TLDR
Although the backbone relationships within the core clade of the Funariaceae remain unresolved, the polyphyly of these genera withstands alternative hypothesis testing and is clearly homoplasious suggesting that selective pressures are in fact driving the diversification rather than the conservation of sporophytic architecture in the FunARIaceae. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships of Haplolepideous Mosses (Dicranidae) Inferred from rps4 Gene Sequences
TLDR
Analysis of chloroplast-encoded rps4 gene sequences for 129 mosses, including representatives of nearly all the haplolepideous families and subfamilies, provides considerable resolution of relationships within the core Dicranidae, yielding a number of well-supported clades. 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
Molecular Phylogenetic Study of Interspecific Variation in the Moss Isothecium (Brachytheciaceae)
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses of the trnL-trnF and trnG regions of the chloroplast genome reveal that there is some genetic basis to the morphs of I. stoloniferum, and that I. myosuroides is paraphyletic. Expand
Phylogenetic inferences in the dung-moss family Splachnaceae from analyses of cpDNA sequence data and implications for the evolution of entomophily.
TLDR
Reconstruction of shifts between wind and insect spore dispersal syndromes suggests that entomophily arose more than once and may have been followed by a reversal to the generalist strategy in two lineages. Expand
New Data on the Moss Genus Hymenoloma (Bryophyta), with Special Reference to H. mulahaceni
TLDR
Molecular data helped to show that Hymenoloma brevipes, morphologically closely related to H. crispulum, is a distinct taxon from H. antarcticum, and a comprehensive revision is necessary to confirm its status in the region. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Pottiaceae (Musci) based on chloroplast rps4 sequence data
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,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
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

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.

Circumscription and phylogeny of the Orthotrichales (Bryopsida) inferred from RBCL sequence analyses.
TLDR
The contribution of rbcL sequence data to bryophyte systematics is illustrated and, particularly, in determining the affinities of taxa lacking a peristome, whose characters are central to the classification of mosses. Expand
Evolution of the Major Moss Lineages: Phylogenetic Analyses Based on Multiple Gene Sequences and Morphology
TLDR
Combining morphological and molecular data in the analyses showed that mosses, including Sphagnum, Takakia, Andreaea and Andreaeobryum, form a monophyletic group, provided improved resolution of higher level relationships, and further insight into evolutionary patterns in morphology. Expand
Peristome Development in Mosses in Relation to Systematics and Evolution. IV. Haplolepideae: Ditrichaceae and Dicranaceae
TLDR
Developmental evidence suggests that haplolepideous peristome teeth are homologous to the cilia of Bryum-type peristomes rather than to the endostome segments, as is commonly thought. Expand
Peristome development in mosses in relation to systematics and evolution. III: Funaria hygrometrica, Bryum pseudocapillare, and B. bicolor
TLDR
The complete developmental sequence leading to peristome formation in Funaria hygrometrica is the first such study from the Funariaceae and it is determined that displacement can be traced both to the position of some anticlinal walls at their formation, and to the shifting of other walls late in development of Bryum-type peristomes.

The Affinities of Costesia and Neosharpiella and Notes on the Gigaspermaceae (Musci)
TLDR
Evidence is presented that Neosharpiella and Costesia are improperly placed within the Funariaceae and that they are better placed in the Gigaspermaceae sensu Brotherus. Expand
A Reinterpretation of Peristome Structure in Pseudoditrichum mirabile Steere & Iwats. (Pseudoditrichaceae)
Cellular patterns of the dorsal and ventral endostomial surfaces provide the best means for distinguishing peristomes of the Funariales and Encalyptales from those of other diplolepideous orders.Expand

An understanding of sporophyte modifications in relation to habitat preferences will greatly clarify ideas of evolutionary paral- lelisms and adaptive specialization. Expand

TLDR
Cladocarpy is interpreted as functional pleu- rocarpy that has evolved in a number of independent lineages and may represent a type of heterochrony-a paedomorphosis in branch development. Expand
