Phylogenetic endemism: a new approach for identifying geographical concentrations of evolutionary history

Rosauer, Dan; Laffan, Shawn; Crisp, Michael; Donnellan, Stephen C.; Cook, Lynette Gai


We present a new, broadly applicable measure of the spatial restriction of phylogenetic diversity, termed phylogenetic endemism (PE). PE combines the widely used phylogenetic diversity and weighted endemism measures to identify areas where substantial components of phylogenetic diversity are restricted. Such areas are likely to be of considerable importance for conservation. PE has a number of desirable properties not combined in previous approaches. It assesses endemism consistently,...[Show more]
