Article
Sphagnum magellanicum is one of two Sphagnum species for which a reference‐quality genome exists to facilitate research in ecological genomics. Phylogenetic and comparative genomic analyses were conducted based on resequencing data from 48 samples and RADseq analyses based on 187 samples. We report herein that there are four clades/species within t...
Article
Species delimitation is problematic in many plant groups and among the mosses, Sphagnum is one of the more contentious genera because of high levels of morphological variation. The allopolyploid species, Sphagnum majus, comprises one such problematic complex. Two morphologically differentiated but overlapping subspecies have been described. We cond...

Reference-free reduced representation bisulfite sequencing uses enzymatic digestion for reducing genome complexity and allows detection of markers to study DNA methylation of a high number of individuals in natural populations of non-model organisms. Current methods like epiGBS enquire the use of a higher number of methylated DNA oligos with a sign...
Article
A major problem in taxonomy is to determine if morphological variation in field-collected specimens is caused by genetic differentiation, and therefore corresponds to evolutionary distinct units, or is caused by environmental variation acting on a single interbreeding population. To evaluate the effect of environmental variation on the taxonomy of...
Article
Premise of the Study A period of allopatry is widely believed to be essential for the evolution of reproductive isolation. However, strict allopatry may be difficult to achieve in some cosmopolitan, spore‐dispersed groups, like mosses. We examined the genetic and genome size diversity in Mediterranean populations of the moss Ceratodon purpureus s.l...
Article
Full-text available
A revision of the nomenclatural and taxonomical data related to Ceratodon conicus (Hampe ex Müll. Hal.) Lindb. and its synonyms published by Burley & Pritchard (1990) was carried out. The lectotype designated from material filed in GOET was confirmed, but the material from duplicates of lectotype specimens filed in FH, GOET, and MANH was found not...

Article
The improvement of the conservation and management strategies of endangered species requires an understanding of the history and current state of their populations and thus population genetic studies become essential. This situation is especially critical for the relict populations at the low-latitude limit of the species range, which have persiste...
Conference Paper
Con más de 15.000 especies los briófitos constituyen una parte importante de la biodiversidad terrestre. En comparación con las plantas vasculares, sus especies suelen tener una distribución muy amplia y algunas especies llegan a ser cosmopolitas. Este hecho se debe sobre todo a las esporas que con su tamaño reducido se ven fácilmente arrastradas p...

Premise of the study: We characterize 10 microsatellite loci in the endangered fern Vandenboschia speciosa (Hymenophyllaceae), enabling studies on the genetic population structure of this Macaronesian-European species using DNA hypervariable markers. Methods and results: Ten primer sets were developed and tested on 47 individuals in a total of t...
Article
The European Leucodon species, L. immersus, L. flagellaris and L. pendulus, as well the Asian L. coreensis were studied and compared with the widely distributed L. sciuroides in light of DNA sequences and morphometric data. The study focused mainly on Eastern Europe and Western Asian specimens. The nrITS spacers were sequenced and 17 morphological...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Elevational gradients in genetic diversity within species are nearly as ubiquitous as latitudinal gradients, and they offer many characteristics that make them perhaps more suitable for uncovering the underlying cause(s) of spatial variation in diversity. The adaption process forms part of the evolution of a species, which is the ability of a popul...
