The first phylogenetic study of the genus Hennediella using nuclear ITS rDNA for 11 of the 15 species recognized is presented. Maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian analyses were performed to evaluate the monophyly of the genus and to investigate phylogenetic relationships between the species. The molecular data suggest that the core Hennediella is monophyletic only including Tortula platyphylla, although the affinities of two species (Hennediella heteroloma and H… 

A molecular approach to the phylogeny of the moss genus Pseudocrossidium (Pottiaceae, Bryopsida) and its taxonomic implications

Bayesian and maximum likelihood topologies show that the genus Pseudocrossidium is polyphyletic and numerous taxonomic changes resulting from the molecular, morphological, and nomenclatural studies are proposed, and the phylogenetic and morphologically divergent PseudOCrossidium mendozense is renamed as Gertrudiella mendozensis.

Circumscription and Phylogenetic Position of Two Propagulose Species of Syntrichia (Pottiaceae, Bryophyta) Reveals Minor Realignments within the Tribe Syntricheae

Phylogenetic analyses were performed using maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference methods and placed Syntrichia amphidiacea in the Streptopogon clade, and accepted Sagenotortula as distinct genus sister to syntrichia.

Infraspecific molecular trees are associated with serial macroevolution in Pottiaceae (Bryophyta)

The analytic orientation of this paper is intended as a replacement for the antiquated but still prevalent phylogenetic inferential models and techniques of the late 20 сentury that are focused entirely on shared descent.

Pseudosymblepharis and Oxystegus species (Pottiaceae) new to northwestern North America, and refutation of molecular Chionoloma

Abstract. Three species of Pottiaceae (Bryophyta) of limited distribution worldwide are reported for hyperoceanic northwestern North America. The Asian Pseudosymblepharis angustata is a genus and

A new species of moss emerges from molecular and morphological data: Schistidium memnonium sp. nov. (Grimmiaceae, Bryophyta)

The species is distinguished by its ovate to ovate-triangular leaves, unistratose lamina in lower part, occasionally with 2-stratose spots or short striae, in central and upper part varying from 1- stratose to 2-Stratose in spots and striae.

Fissidens eremicus (Fissidentaceae), a new pseudocryptic African–European species with dimorphic stems

F.Jiménez has been described as a new species that can be considered as pseudocryptic and is readily confused with F. sublimbatus, known from the Canary Islands, North Africa and south-southeast Spain, colonising loamy-calcareous soils in ravines of places that are generally neither arid nor subject to much rain.

The rare moss Cinclidotus vivesii Ederra, a case of interspecific hybridization

A study based on specimens morphologically close to this species, from the north of the Iberian Peninsula, and samples of the known European species of Cinclidotus, has shown that C. vivesii is an interspecific hybrid between C. aquaticus and C. riparius.

Hennediella austroafricana Hedd. & M.J.Cano, a new moss species from the Cape winter-rainfall region

Cano is a new species that is currently known only from the type locality in the Cape winter-rainfall region at Drie Kuilen, where it grew in Matjiesfontein Renosterveld.

Recent literature on bryophytes—113(1)

This book presents a monograph on the phytochemical properties of fruit flies, and some of the varieties that have been studied have shown promise in theoperation of the immune system and in the selection of new varieties.



Preliminary Investigation of the Systematics of Didymodon (Pottiaceae, Musci) Based on nrITS Sequence Data

The molecular data confirm the monophyly of Didymodon as clearly separated from Barbula, and the phylogenetic affinities of the species generally do not correspond with the infrageneric classification proposed for the genus based on morphological characteristics.

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 Rhynchostegiae

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,

Phylogeny of the Sphagnopsida Based on Chloroplast and Nuclear DNA Sequences

Molecular data suggest that phylogenetic structure in Sphagnum can be accommodated by four large sections without segregating morphologically distinctive taxa into smaller sections, as is traditionally done.

Supraspecific Circumscription and Classification of Campylopus (Dicranaceae, Bryopsida) Based on Inferences from Sequence Data

Maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood calculations of sequences from the chloroplast DNA and the more conserved nrDNA parts confirm the monophyly of a clade comprising the Campylopodioideae plus Leucobryum (Leukobryaceae), as proposed by previous molecular studies.

The genus Tortula (Pottiaceae, Bryophyta) in South America

The moss genus Tortula is revised for South America and a new species, Tortula arequipensis, is described from Peru, and twenty-six names are newly synonymized.

Testing Controversial Alignments in Amblystegium and Related Genera (Amblystegiaceae: Bryopsida). Evidence from rDNA ITS Sequences

ITS sequences support previous suggestions based on morphology that Campylophyllum halleri is not closely related to Campylium stellatum or Campyliadelphus chrysophyllus, and support previous treatments that divide Drepanocladus into two or more segregate genera.

The Pottiaceae s.str. as an evolutionary lazarus taxon (Papers to Commemorate the 100th Issue of the Journal of the Hattori Botanical Laboratory) -- (Bryology)

Past evolutionary schema is evaluated in light of this theoretically acceptable exception to Dollo's Law that complex traits are never re-evolved, and two features of the Pottiaceae are suggested to be likewise homoiologous.

A morphometric and molecular study in Tortula subulata complex (Pottiaceae, Bryophyta)

The internal transcribed spacer (ITS) data suggest that this group of taxa is not monophyletic, T. subulata is considered to be of high morphological variability, for which ITS sequences did not resolve the internal relationships.

The genus Hennediella Par.: a note on the affinities of Tortula brevis Whitehouse & Newton and T. stanfordensis Steere

Tortula brevis Whitehouse & Newton and T. stanfordensis Steere are compared with Pottia macrophylla from New Zealand and the genus Hennediella is reinstated for P. Macrophylla.
