Evolution of a hotspot genus: geographic variation in speciation and extinction rates in Banksia (Proteaceae)

Cardillo, Marcel; Pratt, Renae

Description

BACKGROUND Hotspots of angiosperm species richness and endemism in Mediterranean-climate regions are among the most striking, but least well-understood, geographic patterns of biodiversity. Recent studies have emphasized the importance of rapid diversification within hotspots, compared to non-hotspot regions, as a major contributor to these patterns. We constructed the first near-complete phylogeny of Banksia (Proteaceae) to test whether diversification rates have differed between lineages...[Show more]
