Variable responses of skinks to a common history of rainforest fluctuation: Concordance between phylogeography and palaeo-distribution models

Moussalli, Adnan; Williams, Stephen E.; Carnaval, Ana Carolina; Moritz, Craig


There is a growing appreciation of impacts of late-Quaternary climate fluctuations on spatial patterns of species and genetic diversity. A major challenge is to understand how and why species respond individualistically to a common history of climate-induced habitat fluctuation. Here, we combine modelling of palaeo-distributions and mitochondrial-DNA phylogeographies to compare spatial patterns of population persistence and isolation across three species of rainforest skinks (Saproscincus spp.)...[Show more]
