Campylopus introflexus es una especie de musgo acrocárpico nativa del hemisferio sur, pero que ha sido introducida en numerosas zonas del hemisferio norte donde actúa como invasora. En este artículo se analiza la presencia de esta especie en Tenerife (Islas Canarias, España) así como el marco temporal de su historia de invasión.
Data
Results of the principal component analysis (PCA) representing the first three components. The percentage of variance explained by each component is given in brackets. Arrows represent the variables included in the analyses. cos2 represents the squared loadings for variables. ! = samples originally identified as Orthotrichum kellmanii. (TIF)

Biogeography, systematics and taxonomy are complementary scientific disciplines. To understand a species’ origin, migration routes, distribution and evolutionary history, it is first necessary to establish its taxonomic boundaries. Here, we use an integrative approach that takes advantage of complementary disciplines to resolve an intriguing scient...

In this paper we provide new bryophyte reports for Macaronesia as a whole, for single archipelagos, and for single islands. New to Macaronesia are Aneura pseudopinguis, Didymodon brachyphyllus, Diplophyllum obtusifolium, Distichium capillaceum, and Schizymenium pontevedrense. First archipelago reports concern Brachythecium albicans (Canary Islands)...
Article
A morpho-molecular study was undertaken to solve the taxonomic identity of Riccia plants from the Canary Islands. These plants were assumed to belong to the South African endemic Riccia section Pilifer, but could not be assigned to a particular species in that section. In the interim they were named R. lamellosa (section Riccia), since R. lamellosa...

Pérez-Vargas, I, Hernández Padrón, C. & Losada-Lima, A. 2014. Moelleropsis nebulosa subsp. frullaniae (Pannariaceae), a disjunct and poorly known lichen, new to Macaronesia. — Herzogia 27: 409–412. Moelleropsis nebulosa subsp. frullaniae has been discovered in the Canary Islands for the first time in the Macaronesian Region growing on two species o...

We revised both the holotype and an isotype of Riccia teneriffae S.W.Arnell 1962 and additionally revised our own collections of Riccia cavernosa Hoffm. 1795 from the Canary Islands. Since the types of R. teneriffae represent R. cavernosa, and the latter name precedes the former, R. teneriffae should be treated as a synonym of R. cavernosa. In the...

We provide first Canary Islands reports of Diphyscium foliosum (Hedw.) D. Mohr, Entosthodon longicolle (Trab.) Ros et M.J. Cano, Tortella alpicola Dixon and T. bambergeri (Schimp.) Broth., being the last three also new to Macaronesia. First individual island reports are given for Acaulon mediterraneum Limpr. (Gran Canaria, Tenerife), and Tortella l...

Based on a revision of Andreaea from the Canary Islands, the occurence of two species is confirmed. A key is provided. A. crassifolia Luisier occurs on Gran Canaria, La Palma and Tenerife. A. heinemannii Hampe & Müll.Hal. occurs on La Palma. Former records of A. heinemannii s.l. for Gran Canaria and Tenerife refer to A. crassifolia.
Article
We studied bryophyte species composition on five tree species (Erica scoparia, Laurus azorica, Myrica faya, Ilex canariensis, and I. Perado) of the laurel forest on Tenerife in order to determine the dominant factors influencing bryophyte community structure. Most of the 37 bryophyte species we found (24 liverworts and 11 mosses) are facultative ep...

... In these examples of mosses with only asexual reproduction in Spain, human threats are absent, and their conservation status is related only to their natural rarity (Söderström and During, 2005;Garilleti and Albertos, 2012). The origin of their current small populations might be related either to past environmental changes and geographical range oscillations (Frahm, 2012;Kyrkjeeide et al., 2014) or to limited and recent long-distance dispersal events (Sotiaux et al., 2006;Vigalondo et al., 2019;Flagmeier et al., 2020). ...

... R. cavernosa was first reported from Alaska (Dirkse and Losada-lima, 2011) and in India from Pachmarhi (M.P.) ( Bapna and Kachroo, 2000) It was earlier described as R. robusta (Kashayap,1929) and R. crystallina (Bapna and Kachroo, 2000).However, a detail comparative morphotaxanomical study of R teneriffae and R cavernosa concluded that R cavernosa is a valid and accepted name throughout the world (Dirkse and Losada-lima 2011).R. glauca is widely distributed in European country and Russia and in India it was reported from Guhati (Assam) R. ruppinensis, R.venosa, and R. major were earlier synonyms of R. glauca and on the basis of priority R. glauca has been conserved (Bapna and Kachroo, 2000). ...

... This may be interpreted as a lower diversity per sample as the forest age increases, which may be explained because of the loss of numerous pioneer/colonist species that are widely distributed after fire. These pioneer species are replaced by other long-lived species, usually pleurocarpous epiphyte mosses, characteristic of old growth forests (González-Mancebo et al., 2003;González-Mancebo et al., 2008). ...
