Phylogenetic analysis of cetrarioid lichens with globose ascospores

Saag, Andres; Randlane, Tiina; Thell, Arne LU and Obermayer, Walter (2002) In Proceedings of the Estonian Academy of Sciences Biology Ecology 51(2). p.103-123
Abstract (Swedish)
The group of cetrarioid lichens with globose ascospores includes 37 species from eight genera. Phylogenetic analysis, using program PAUP 3.1.1, was carried out on two different data sets – morphological (incl. anatomical and chemical) and molecular characters (ITS1, 5.8S, and ITS2 rDNA sequences) – to verify the correspondence of current taxonomy to the probable evolution of the taxa involved. The paraphyletic nature of the genus Allocetraria in regard to two species of Dactylina is assumed based on morphological characters. Still, the separation of these genera is strongly supported by the analysis of molecular data. The genus Tuckermannopsis (11 species) is paraphyletic in regard to Esslingeriana idahoensis and “Nephromopsis” weii.... (More)
