Genetic consequences of cladogenetic vs. anagenetic speciation in endemic plants of oceanic islands
This paper presents for the first time a comparison of the genetic consequences of two different types of speciation in plants of an oceanic island. Genetic data, using two different DNA methods,Expand

Progressive migration and anagenesis in Drimys confertifolia of the Juan Fernández Archipelago, Chile
A common mode of speciation in oceanic islands is by anagenesis, wherein an immigrant arrives and through time transforms by mutation, recombination, and drift into a morphologically and geneticallyExpand

Factors driving adaptive radiation in plants of oceanic islands: a case study from the Juan Fernández Archipelago
Adaptive radiation is a common evolutionary phenomenon in oceanic islands. From one successful immigrant population, dispersal into different island environments and directional selection can rapidlyExpand

Relationships and genetic consequences of contrasting modes of speciation among endemic species of Robinsonia (Asteraceae, Senecioneae) of the Juan Fernández Archipelago, Chile, based on AFLPs and
This study analyses and compares the genetic signatures of anagenetic and cladogenetic speciation in six species of the genus Robinsonia (Asteraceae, Senecioneae), endemic to the Juan FernándezExpand

Genetic variation (AFLPs and nuclear microsatellites) in two anagenetically derived endemic species of Myrceugenia (Myrtaceae) on the Juan Fernández Islands, Chile.
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Anagenesis (or phyletic evolution) is one mode of speciation that occurs in the evolution of plants on oceanic islands. Of two endemic species on the Juan Fernández IslandsExpand

Speciation and Biogeography of Erigeron (Asteraceae) in the Juan Fernández Archipelago, Chile, Based on AFLPs and SSRs
Abstract Oceanic islands provide many opportunities for examining modes of speciation in endemic plants, especially using modern molecular methods. Most speciation has been by either cladogenesis,Expand

Biogeography and genetic consequences of anagenetic speciation of Rhaphithamnus venustus (Verbenaceae) in the Juan Fernández archipelago, Chile: insights from AFLP and SSR markers
The genus R haphithamnus (Verbenaceae) consists of two species, one in South America and another endemic to the Juan Fernandez archipelago, Chile. The genus represents an example of anageneticExpand
