Differences and similarities of sex ratios between dioecious angiosperms and dioicous bryophytes
Primary sex ratios were often variable, suggesting genomic conflict involving both cytoplasmic factors and sex-linked drive, and even though theory predicts some differences, primary sex ratios of angiosperms and bryophytes were remarkably similar. Expand
Sexual Dimorphism, Vegetative Growth and Reproductive Investment in the Rhizautoicous Moss Fissidens flaccidus (Fissidentaceae, Bryopsida)
The results indicate trade-offs between reproductive investment and vegetative growth for both sexes in this species and sexual dimorphism in morphological features is confirmed. Expand
The impact of asexual and sexual reproduction in spatial genetic structure within and between populations of the dioecious plant Marchantia inflexa (Marchantiaceae)
This study demonstrates that studying only the sexes and not their genotypes can limit the understanding of the extent to which reproductive modes (sexual or asexual) influence genetic structure both within and between populations. Expand
Ecology of desiccation tolerance in bryophytes: A conceptual framework and methodology
Bryophytes have long been understood to be desiccation tolerant (capable of reviving from an air-dry state, DT). While mechanistic studies focusing on the expression of this complex trait areExpand
Variation in the bacteriome of the tropical liverwort, Marchantia inflexa, between the sexes and across habitats
This work characterized the bacteriome of the non-vascular plant, Marchantia inflexa, in both males and females across multiple habitats by targeted sequencing of the bacterial 16S rRNA gene, and suggests that the specific taxonomic assemblages of bacteria detected in particular habitat types may serve functional roles.
