Comparative phylogeography of African rain forest trees: A review of genetic signatures of vegetation history in the Guineo-Congolian region
The biogeographic history of the African rain forests has been contentious. Phylogeography, the study of the geographic distribution of genetic lineages within species, can highlight the signaturesExpand

Orchid-bird interactions: a case study from Angraecum (Vandeae, Angraecinae) and Zosterops (white-eyes, Zosteropidae) on Reunion Island
Although angraecoid orchids are famous for their spectacular flowers, pollinated by hawkmoths in Madagascar, two species of Angraecum endemic to the Mascarenes (sect. Hadrangis ) have atypicalExpand

Bird pollination in an angraecoid orchid on Reunion Island (Mascarene Archipelago, Indian Ocean).
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Although numerous angraecoid orchids in Madagascar display typical sphingophilous syndrome (i.e. white, nectariferous, long-spurred flowers, producing a strong scent at theExpand

Auto-pollination in a long-spurred endemic orchid (Jumellea stenophylla) on Reunion Island (Mascarene Archipelago, Indian Ocean)
SummarySince Darwin, long-spurred angraecoid orchids have been known for their fascinating evolutionary relationship with long-tongued hawkmoths (Sphingidae) on Madagascar. We studied theExpand
