Orchid biogeography and factors associated with rarity in a biodiversity hotspot, the Southwest Australian Floristic Region

Phillips, Ryan; Brown, Andrew P; Dixon, Kingsley; Hopper, Stephen D.


Aim The causes of orchid diversification and intrinsic rarity are poorly resolved. The Orchidaceae of the Southwest Australian Floristic Region use a diversity of pollination strategies and sites of mycorrhizal infection, and occupy a diversity of habitats. We combined a biogeographic analysis with analysis of factors associated with rarity to establish: (1) the landscape features correlated with taxon turnover and speciation, and (2) the possible role in taxon rarity of geographic region,...[Show more]
