Hoskin, Conrad; Tonione, M.; Higgie, Megan; MacKenzie, Jason B.; Williams, Stephen E.; VanDerWal, Jeremy; Moritz, Craig

Description

It is well established from the fossil record and phylogeographic analyses that late Quaternary climate fluctuations led to substantial changes in species' distribution, but whether and how these fluctuations resulted in phenotypic divergence and speciation is less clear. This question can be addressed through detailed analysis of traits relevant to ecology and mating within and among intraspecific lineages that persisted in separate refugia. In a biogeographic system (the Australian Wet...[Show more]
