The evolutionary capacity of bryophytes and lichens

Journal Article

Evolutionary capacity can be thought of as the capacity for speciation, or as the rate at which a population responds to natural selection. The genetic structures of lichen and bryophyte species are described in relation to such evolutionary capacity. A pressing problem with lichens is the question of what constitutes an individual, with a better understanding required of the genetic and evolutionary relationships between phycobiont and mycobiont. -P.J.Jarvis
