Morphology and molecular phylogeny of Trentepohliales (Chlorophyta) from China

It is suggested that the ostiole position of the zoosporangia might effectively indicate the main lineages of Trentepohliales, with reassessment of the genera Trentepohlia and Printzina required based on this ostIOle positioning.

Phylogenetic position and morphology of lichenized Trentepohliales (Ulvophyceae, Chlorophyta) from selected species of Graphidaceae

The phylogenetic positions of the photobionts were investigated using sequences of the 18S rRNA gene, ITS region, and rbcL gene and three strains were identified as Printzina lagenifera, Trentepohlia sp.

New insights into diversity and selectivity of trentepohlialean lichen photobionts from the extratropics

The multilocus tree does not support the current morphological classification of genera in Trentepohliaceae, suggesting that morphology is more variable than previously thought in this group of algae.

Characterization of the Chloroplast Genome of Trentepohlia odorata (Trentepohliales, Chlorophyta), and Discussion of its Taxonomy

The results present the first whole chloroplast genome of a species of Trentepohliales and provided new data for understanding the evolution of the chloroplow genome in Ulvophyceae.

The Diversity of Lichenized Trentepohlioid Algal (Ulvophyceae) Communities is Driven by Fungal Taxonomy and Ecological Factors

Coevolution between myc Cobionts and photobionts as well as switching between free living and lichenized lifestyles appeared to drive the evolution of Trentepohliales and might explain the high cryptic diversity observed, which might be changing in some regions due to climate change.

Morphological Examination and Phylogenetic Analyses of Phycopeltis spp. (Trentepohliales, Ulvophyceae) from Tropical China

The traditional taxonomic criteria for Phycopeltis must be reassessed based on phylogeny using more species, and a new circumscription of the PhyCopeltis and the erection of new genera are recommended.

Species concept in the genus Trentepohlia (Ulvophyceae, Chlorophyta): a combination of molecular and morphological approaches

A precise morphological study of the European Trentepohlia species and the re-evaluation of their phylogenetic position using rbcL gene sequencing confirmed the ongoing inconsistencies among morphologically and molecularly delimited species and also the existence of cryptic species.

Molecular phylogeny and morphology of Cephaleuros (Trentepohliales, Chlorophyta) from southern China

The present study represents the most detailed taxonomic assessment of Cephaleuros available to date and reveals that the subaerial green alga was composed of two main lineages, with one lineage comprising mostly samples of C. karstenii and C. virescens and the other comprising other species.

Molecular characterization of eukaryotic algal communities in the tropical phyllosphere based on real-time sequencing of the 18S rDNA gene

This study provided a large amount of novel 18S rDNA sequences that will be useful to unravel the cryptic diversity of phyllosphere eukaryotic algae and for comparisons with similar future studies on this type of communities.

Heveochlorella (Trebouxiophyceae): a little‐known genus of unicellular green algae outside the Trebouxiales emerges unexpectedly as a major clade of lichen photobionts in foliicolous communities

It is concluded that Heveochlorella includes algae of potentially major importance as lichen photobionts, particularly within (but not limited to) foliicolous communities in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide.

Molecular systematics of the subaerial green algal order Trentepohliales: an assessment based on morphological and molecular data.

Subcuticular habit, heteromorphic life history and occurrence of zoosporangia in clusters are shown to be phylogenetically significant features, whereas other characters commonly used for separation of species and genera have no phylogenetic relevance.

MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE GREEN ALGAL ORDER PRASIOLALES (TREBOUXIOPHYCEAE, CHLOROPHYTA) 1

The results of the analyses did not allow an unambiguous clarification of the origin and the early evolution of the Prasiolales, and the rbcL gene had higher sequence divergence than the 18S rRNA gene and was more useful for phylogenetic inference at the ranks of genus and species.

PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSES OF THE BRYOPSIDALES (ULVOPHYCEAE, CHLOROPHYTA) BASED ON RUBISCO LARGE SUBUNIT GENE SEQUENCES 1

Analysis of 32 taxa from this diverse group of green algae based on plastid‐encoded RUBISCO large subunit (rbcL) gene sequences suggested that the Halimedineae and Bryopsidineae are distinct monophyletic lineages.

PHYLOGENY OF THE DASYCLADALES (CHLOROPHYTA, ULVOPHYCEAE) BASED ON ANALYSES OF RUBISCO LARGE SUBUNIT (rbcL) GENE SEQUENCES 1

The phylogeny of the green algal Order Dasycladales was inferred by maximum parsimony and Bayesian analyses of chloroplast‐encoded rbcL sequence data and suggested that the tribe Acetabularieae is monophyletic but that some genera within the tribe are not, casting doubt on the current family‐level classification.

A REVISED CLASSIFICATION OF THE DICTYOTEAE (DICTYOTALES, PHAEOPHYCEAE) BASED ON rbcL AND 26S RIBOSOMAL DNA SEQUENCE ANALYSES 1

Phylogenetic analysis of rbcL gene, partial 26S rDNA sequence, and combined data sets demonstrates that the traditional classification of Dictyota does not accurately reflect the evolutionary history of the group, and a merger of Glossophora, Glossophorella, and Pachydictyon in D dictyota is proposed.

PHYLOGENY OF THE CONJUGATING GREEN ALGAE (ZYGNEMOPHYCEAE) BASED ON rbc  L SEQUENCES

The molecular data do not support hypotheses of monophyly for groups of extant unicellular and filamentous or colonial desmid genera exhibiting a common cell shape, but imply that multicellular placoderm desmids are monophyletic.

Origin and evolution of the colonial volvocales (Chlorophyceae) as inferred from multiple, chloroplast gene sequences.

Most of the evolution of the colonial Volvocales appears to constitute a gradual progression in colonial complexity and in types of sexual reproduction, as in the traditional volvocine lineage hypothesis, although reverse evolution must be considered for the origin of certain species of Pleodorina.

Morphology and phylogenetic position of Spongiochrysis hawaiiensis gen. et sp. nov., the first known terrestrial member of the order Cladophorales (Ulvophyceae, Chlorophyta).

Phylogenetic analyses of the 18S rRNA gene showed that Spongiochrysis hawaiiensis is a member of the freshwater clade of the Cladophorales/Siphonocladales lineage in the green algal class Ulvophyceae and can be considered as the first known successful step of a members of the order Cladphorales into terrestrial habitats.

The molecular phylogeny and ultrastructure of Chlorogonium and related species were examined to establish the natural taxonomy at the generic level and Gungnir Nakada gen. nov was described on the basis of unique ultrastructural characteristics.
