Interpreting the modern distribution of Myrtaceae using a dated molecular phylogeny

Thornhill, Andrew; Ho, Simon; Kulheim, Carsten; Crisp, Michael

Description

The angiosperm family Myrtaceae has extant and fossil taxa from all southern continents and is assumed to be of Gondwanan origin. Many modern groups contain sister taxa that have disjunct transoceanic distributions, which can be interpreted as a result of either vicariance or long-distance dispersal and establishment (LDDE). Further, some Myrtaceae groups occur on Pacific islands with enigmatic geological histories. We tested hypotheses of vicariance and LDDE by estimating divergence times...[Show more]
