Article
Most of our understanding of island diversity comes from the study of aboveground systems, while the patterns and processes of diversification and community assembly for belowground biotas remain poorly understood. Here we take advantage of a relatively young and dynamic oceanic island to advance our understanding of eco‐evolutionary processes driv...

Specialisation to the soil environment is expected to constrain the spatial scale of diversification within animal lineages. In this context, flightless arthropod lineages, adapted to soil environments, but with broad geographical ranges, represent something of an anomaly. Here we investigate the diversification process within one such ‘anomalous’...

Article

To what extent do parallel and unique local adaptation occur along elevational gradients? In a reciprocal transplant experiment, Bachmann and Van Buskirk (2020) found stronger evidence for parallel adaptation to elevation than for unique local adaptation in Rana temporaria populations of the Swiss Alps. This finding has important implications for u...
Article
Aim Coastal plants are terrestrial organisms for which ocean surface currents often act as long‐distance dispersal vectors (thalassochorous species) favouring broad distributions and connecting distant populations. However, few studies have statistically assessed the role of currents in modulating gene flow and species distributions of terrestrial...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Understanding the distribution of species has aroused scientific interest since ancient times. In this study, we intend to hypothesize a possible dispersal mechanism that allows us to understand the current distribution of Astydamia latifolia in the Canary Islands. The study of the fruits by scanning electron microscopy allowed to verify the existe...

Dispersal is the process that allows organisms to reach new suitable territories and expand their area of occupancy. In plants, long-distance dispersal (LDD) of diaspores is related to the presence of morphological structures (dispersal syndromes) that favor mobility by wind (anemochorous), sea currents (thalasochorous) and animals (epizoochorous a...

Plant conservation is one of the main aspects about ecosystem conservation, since plants play an essential role in the relationships among organisms. Its distribution area may be conditioned not only by the diaspore dispersal specializations but also by habitat suitability. Oceanic islands are an ideal scenario to study the colonization process of...
Article
Oceanic islands emerge lifeless from the seafloor and are separated from continents by long stretches of sea. Consequently, all their species had to overcome this stringent dispersal filter, making these islands ideal systems to study the biogeographic implications of long-distance dispersal (LDD). It has long been established that the capacity of...
Article
Full-text available
A great number of scientific papers claim that angiosperm diversification is manifested by an ample differentiation of diaspore traits favoring long-distance seed dispersal. Oceanic islands offer an ideal framework to test whether the acquisition of multiple sets of diaspore traits (syndromes) by a single species results in a wider geographic distr...
