Sample text

These recorded differences are probably the result of a difference in species concept held by those investigating the two groups. Bryologists tend to be conservative in naming species, only naming those with distinct morphological differences. Because of the relatively slow rate of morphological change, currently recognized moss species are thus undoubtedly older than many angiosperm species. It is likely that if the species level was applied in mosses at the same age level as it is in angiosperms, there might be as many species of mosses as angiosperms!

To test this hypothesis, Shaw and Gaughan (1993) examined four haploid gametophytes each from 40 sporophytes from a population of C. purpureus in Michigan, USA. Males produced more stems, but overall had less variability than females in growth rate and size (Shaw and Gaughan, 1993). Shaw et al. (1997) reported that sex had a detectable effect on the expression of variation in these populations, suggesting that trait variation in the sexes had a different genetic architecture. In a more detailed study, Shaw and Beer (1999) found that males had a longer juvenile phase, more fertile stems and more sex buds on each stem, significantly shorter leaves, but accumulated less biomass than females.

As described above, self-fertilization results in spores that are genetically similar to asexual propagules. Furthermore, without the genetic benefits of dominance, genes acting in the gametophyte are presumably subject to relatively severe selection. Haploidy plus clonal growth might suggest that levels of genetic variation within populations should be low. g. , 2002); however, other studies show significant variation within populations (McDaniel and Shaw, 2005). e. those in which sporophytes have not been seen in nature).
