Abstract Spanish moss Tillandsia usneoides is an epiphytic bromeliad widely distributed throughout tropical and warm temperate America. This plant is highly adapted to extreme environmental conditions. Striking features of this species include specialized trichomes scales covering the surface of its shoots aiding the absorption of water and nutrients directly from the atmosphere and a specific photosynthesis using crassulacean acid metabolism CAM. Here we report the plastid genome of Spanish moss and present the comparison of genome organization and sequence evolution within Poales.
The plastid genome had Our study shows that early diverging lineages of Poales do not have high substitution rates as compared to grasses, and plastid genomes of bromeliads show structural features considered to be ancestral in graminids. These include the loss of the introns in the clpP and rpoC1 genes and the complete loss or partial degradation of accD and ycf genes in the Graminid clade. Introduction Chloroplasts, considered to have originated from cyanobacteria through endosymbiosis, are organelles responsible of photosynthesis to provide essential energy for plants and numerous other lineages of eukaryotes [ 1 ].
In angiosperms, chloroplast cp genomes exist in circular DNA forms [ 2 ] ranging from to kb in length [ 3 ]. Although, the extracted cpDNA is found in various structural forms, including branched-linear multigenomic molecules, unit-genome-sized linear isomers and head-to-tail concatemers, and less-than-genome-sized fragments [ 2 ].
Advances in next-generation sequencing technologies [ 45 ] have resulted in a rapid increase in completed plastid genomes [ 6 ] sampled widely across green plants. Lichens appear dry, thin and coarse. You can see both in the growing down from the crook of the tree with moss being a dark green growing down the center.
And since lichens are vulnerable to changes in the habitat scientists use lichens to target areas that should be protected.
It is also said that lichens cannot grow in areas with heavy pollution. You can find thousands of lichens throughout the US and Canada and well over have been found in the National Parks where habitats are less disturbed.
To figure out which lichen you may have you have to look first at the surface texture which can be granular, smooth or veined. Then look at color which can vary from white, grey, orange, reds, yellow-greens and greens.
Symbiosis in the Forest
I have gray, green and orange lichens that appear smooth. The last thing to look for are what are called lobules. Determining which type of lichen you may have can be difficult and may require an expert.

But most experts say that you will generally find three types of lichen in most backyards: Foliose is so named because this lichen looks like foliage or leaves. As this lichen ages the edges will curl up. Lichens have a been used by wildlife and people for centuries. In particular native people have used lichens to dye yarn and fabric.
