Palaeoclimate change drove diversification among isolated mountain refugia in the Australian arid zone

Pepper, Mitzy; Fujita, Matthew K.; Moritz, Craig; Keogh, J Scott

Description

Refugia featured prominently in shaping evolutionary trajectories during repeated cycles of glaciation in the Quaternary, particularly in the Northern Hemisphere. The Southern Hemisphere instead experienced cycles of severe aridification but little is known about the temporal presence and role of refugia for arid-adapted biota. Isolated mountain ranges located in the Australian arid zone likely provided refugia for many species following Mio/Pliocene (<15 Ma) aridification; however, the...[Show more]
