Southern Hemisphere Springtails: Could Any Have Survived Glaciation of Antarctica?

Stevens, Mark I; Greenslade, Penelope; Hogg, Ian; Sunnucks, Paul James


Throughout the Southern Hemisphere many terrestrial taxa have circum-Antarctic distributions. This pattern is generally attributed to ongoing dispersal (by wind, water, or migrating birds) or relict Gondwanan distributions. Few of these terrestrial taxa have extant representatives in Antarctica, but such taxa would contribute to our understanding of the evolutionary origins of the continental Antarctic fauna. Either these taxa have survived the harsh climate cooling in Antarctica over the last...[Show more]
