Abstract Detail



The evolution and ecology of aquatic bryophytes

Mishler, Brent [1], Shaw, Jonathan [2].

The evolution and ecology of aquatic bryophytes.

While mosses, liverworts, and hornworts are abundant in many habitats, they are particularly important ecologically in freshwater aquatic environments ranging from bogs, to lakes, to fast-flowing rivers.  This symposium will explore topics in reproductive biology, ecology, and evolution using recent advances in understanding of phylogeny, population genetics, biogeography, and physiology. General goals are to understand how the diversity of aquatic bryophyte lineages has come about, how have different lineages adapted to the aquatic environment, and how do they interact with other organisms in these environments.
