Life Sciences Seminar

 

 

Exploring biogeographical patterns of bryophytes on oceanic islands. Is all explained by dispersal ability?

Oceanic island biotas are typically characterized by a suite of life-history traits known as ‘island syndromes’. Among such evolutionary phenomena, the loss of dispersal ability characteristic for island taxa has contributed to the hypothesis that islands are evolutionary dead-ends. By using different ecological and phylogeographic approaches, we investigate whether such a prediction applies to highly vagile organisms, taking bryophytes as a model.
