Are global hotspots of endemic richness shaped by plate tectonics?
The geology of the earth has shown profound changes in the position, connectivity and topography of continents during the last 100 Myr, which could have shaped the diversification of lineages and thus the current distribution of biodiversity. Here, we evaluate the association between plate tectonics and the current location of hotspots of endemic richness across the globe. We used palaeogeographies in a model that quantifies, through time and for each geographic cell, the potential dispersal...[Show more]
