Aim Although thermophilous and arid-dwelling relict biotas constitute a singular component of European biodiversity of high conservation value, we still largely ignore their biogeographic history. In this study, we investigate the geographical diversification of the Maghrebian-Levantine crested grasshopper and its colonization of semiarid habitats...
Article
Although the genetic consequences of contemporary landscape composition and range shifts driven Pleistocene climatic oscillations have been studied fairly well in alpine organisms, we know much less about how these factors have shaped the demography of taxa with broader climatic niches and distributions. Here, we use high-throughput sequencing data...

Understanding the processes that shape neutral and adaptive genomic variation is a fundamental step to determine the demographic and evolutionary dynamics of pest species. Here, we use genomic data obtained via restriction site‐associated DNA sequencing to investigate the genetic structure of Moroccan locust (Dociostaurus maroccanus) populations fr...
Article
Inferring the processes underlying spatial patterns of genomic variation is fundamental to understand how organisms interact with landscape heterogeneity and to identify the factors determining species distributional shifts. Here, we employ genomic data (ddRADSeq) to test biologically‐informed models representing historical and contemporary demogra...

Inferring the demographic history of species is fundamental for understanding their responses to past climate/landscape alterations and improving our predictions about the future impacts of the different components of ongoing global change. Estimating the time-frame at which population fragmentation took place is also critical to determine whether...

Introgressive hybridization can introduce genetic novelty into recipient lineages, induce important phenotypic changes and, ultimately, result in the formation of new species. The conditions in which hybridization is more prone to occur and its potential evolutionary consequences have been long discussed, nevertheless empirical examples revealing i...

Quaternary climatic oscillations have been recognized as a major factor shaping the distribution and demography of most organisms worldwide. A classical paradigm establishes that populations that have persisted in climatically stable areas harbor higher genetic variation than those located in climatically unstable and/or recently colonized regions....

Phylogenetic analyses and species delimitation methods are powerful tools for understanding patterns of species diversity. Given the current biodiversity crisis, such approaches are invaluable for urgent assessment and delimitation of truthful species, particularly of endangered and morphologically cryptic taxa from vulnerable areas submitted to st...
