Genetic structure and bio-climatic modeling support allopatric over parapatric speciation along a latitudinal gradient

Rossetto, Maurizio; Allen, Chris B; Thurlby, Katie AG; Weston, Peter H; Milner, Melita L


BACKGROUND Four of the five species of Telopea (Proteaceae) are distributed in a latitudinal replacement pattern on the south-eastern Australian mainland. In similar circumstances, a simple allopatric speciation model that identifies the origins of genetic isolation within temporal geographic separation is considered as the default model. However, secondary contact between differentiated lineages can result in similar distributional patterns to those arising from a process of parapatric...[Show more]
