Character analysis, phylogeny, and classification of the moss genus Pohlia.

Journal Article

Forty-one Pohlia taxa coded for their expression of 36 qualitative morphological characters are analyzed using cladistic and phenetic methods. Four major lineages within the genus differ primarily in sporophyte characters, with specific differences based largely on gametophytic features. An infrageneric classification is proposed with diagnostic descriptions and nomenclature provided. -from Author
