• Long-distance dispersal and barriers shape genetic structure of peatmosses (Sphagnum) across the Northern Hemisphere 

      Kyrkjeeide, Magni Olsen; Hassel, Kristian; Flatberg, Kjell Ivar; Shaw, A. Jonathan; Brochmann, Christian; Stenøien, Hans K. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Aim Disjunctly distributed peatmosses (Sphagnum) have been found to exhibit little genetic structure over regional and intercontinental scales, mainly caused by high ability for transoceanic long-distance dispersal. ...
    • Spatial Genetic Structure of the Abundantand Widespread Peatmoss Sphagnummagellanicum Brid . 

      Kyrkjeeide, Magni Olsen; Hassel, Kristian; Flatberg, Kjell Ivar; Shaw, A. Jonathan; Yousefi, Narjes; Stenøien, Hans K. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-02-09)
      Spore-producing organisms have small dispersal units enabling them to become widespread across continents. However, barriers to gene flow and cryptic speciation may exist. The common, haploid peatmoss Sphagnum magellanicum ...
    • Sphagnum Xlydiae, the first allotriploid peatmoss in the Northern hemisphere 

      Kyrkjeeide, Magni Olsen; Hassel, Kristian; Aguero, Blanka; Temsch, Eva M.; Afonina, Olga M.; Shaw, A. Jonathan; Stenøien, Hans K.; Flatberg, Kjell Ivar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      In plants, hybridization between interspecific taxa leading to chromosome doubling seems to happen regularly and may be an important driver of speciation. Allopolyploid species often have morphological traits from both ...
