Morphological characters from the gametophyte and sporophyte generations have been used in land plants to infer relationships and construct classifications, but sporophytes provide the vast majority of data for the systematics of vascular plants. In bryophytes both generations are well developed and characters from both are commonly used to classify these organisms. However, because morphological traits of gametophytes and sporophytes can have different genetic bases and experience different… Expand
Molecular evolution and diversification of the moss family Daltoniaceae (Hookeriales, Bryophyta) with emphasis on the unravelling of the phylogeny of Distichophyllum and its allies
The evolution of leaf limbidia is relatively conserved, but exostome ornamentation is highly homoplasious, indicating that superficial similarity in peristomes gives unreliable approximations of phylogenetic relatedness. Expand
Cleaning a taxonomic dustbin: placing the European Hypnum species in a phylogenetic context!
A phylogenetic reconstruction of the relationships of the currently recognized European Hypnum taxa in a broad pleurocarpous moss context (192 taxa) using the nuclear ITS1-5.8S-ITS2, the plastid rps 4 gene and trn L-F, and the mitochondrial nad 5 intron is provided. Expand
Disentangling knots of rapid evolution: origin and diversification of the moss order Hypnales
Reconstruction of historical biogeography is congruent with mainly tropical and Gondwanan distributions in the sister groups Hypnodendrales, Ptychomniales, and Hookeriales and with the dating for the oldest pleurocarp and hypnalean fossils. Expand

A new species, Bryobrothera tambuyukonensis (Daltoniaceae, Bryopsida), from Sabah, Borneo Island
A new species Bryobrothera tambuyukonensis is reported, based on the specimens collected in Sabah, Borneo Island, with distinctiveness from B. crenulata and close relationship to the elimbate group comprised of Adelothecium bogotense and Benitotania elimbata. Expand
Filibryum (Hypnaceae), a new moss genus with a new species from East Asia
Molecular data suggest that the genus is closely related to Taxiphyllum and the phylogenetic position of the new genus in the Hypnaceae is supported by an approximately unbiased (AU) test. Expand

Distichophyllum shevockii (Daltoniaceae), a New Moss Species from the Philippines
A new moss species, Distichophyllum shevockii B.C.Ochyra (Daltoniaceae), is described and illustrated from the material collected on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines, which is closely related to D. noguchianum. Expand


Phylogenetic inference rejects sporophyte based classification of the Funariaceae (Bryophyta): rapid radiation suggests rampant homoplasy in sporophyte evolution.
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.

How important is phylogenetic history in explaining character states in pleurocarpous mosses
A redundancy analysis with following forward selection and variance partitioning was performed to evaluate whether character state variation in pleurocarpous mosses is best explained by higher level taxonomic position or a selected set of environmental parameters, and gradients of the sporophyte character states are more important than those of the gametophyte. Expand
Simulations confirm previous results that incomplete sampling yields diversification patterns that appear to reflect a decreasing rate through time, even when the true phylogenies were simulated with constant rates and indicate that a constant rate of diversification cannot be rejected for the Hookeriales.

Adaptive Modes of the Moss Sporophyte
An understanding of sporophyte modifications in relation to habitat preferences will greatly clarify ideas of evolutionary paral- lelisms and adaptive specialization. Expand
Phylogeny, Character Evolution, and Biogeography of the Gondwanic Moss Family Hypopterygiaceae (Bryophyta)
Abstract Phylogenetic relationships among the seven genera of the Hypopterygiaceae, represented by 14 of the 21 species recognized in the family, were reconstructed based on variation in nucleotideExpand
Taxonomy and phylogeny in the earliest diverging pleurocarps: square holes and bifurcating pegs
This most comprehensive molecular phylogenetic study of these lineages to date, based on parsimony and Bayesian analyses of four regions from the chloroplast and mitochondrial genomes, provides the basis for a substantially revised classification reflecting the best currently available hypothesis of evolutionary history.

Ordinal relationships of pleurocarpous mosses, with special emphasis on the Hookeriales
Abstract Sequence data from four DNA regions, namely, chloroplast trnL‐trnF and rps4, mitochondrial nad5, and nuclear 26S rDNA, were surveyed from 89 taxa traditionally associated with theExpand
Phylogenetic analyses reveal high levels of polyphyly among pleurocarpous lineages as well as novel clades
Although the phylogenetic reconstruction of the combined data set was not fully resolved regarding the backbone it clearly indicated the polyphyletic nature of various hypnalean families, such as the Leskeaceae, Hypnaceae, Hylocomiaceae, Neckeraceae, Leptodont Families and Anomodontaceae with respect to the included taxa.

Intercontinentally disjunct species are derived rather than relictual in the moss genus Daltonia (Bryophyta)
The observation that intercontinental distributions are repeated in multiple monophyletic species suggests that a key innovation underlying enhanced abilities for long dispersal evolved within Daltonia, and that this potential was inherited among derived species from their common ancestor. Expand
Polarity of peatmoss (Sphagnum) evolution: who says bryophytes have no roots?
DNA sequences from 16 genomic regions representing the mitochondrial, chloroplast, and nuclear genomes were obtained from 24 species of Sphagnum plus one species each from Takakia and Andreaea in order to resolve a rooted phylogeny. Expand
