Australian spinifex grasses: new names in Triodia for Monodia and Symplectrodia

Crisp, Michael; Mant, J; Toon, A.; Cook, Lynette Gai; Toon, Alicia; Cook, Lynette


The evolution of novel traits ("key innovations") allows some lineages to move into new environments or adapt to changing climates, whereas other lineages may track suitable habitat or go extinct. We test whether, and how, trait shifts are linked to environmental change using Triodiinae, C<inf>4</inf> grasses that form the dominant understory over about 30% of Australia. Using phylogenetic and relaxed molecular clock estimates, we assess the Australian biogeographic origins of Triodiinae and...[Show more]
