Aim Ecological differentiation of closely related species has attracted wide attention to explore its evolutionary significance in speciation. In particular, the prevalence of ecological speciation of sister species driven by Quaternary climate changes is debated. Here, we used two parapatric sister species, Roscoea humeana and R. cautleoides, to test whether ecological speciation was associated with Quaternary climate changes in these taxa. Location Hengduan-Mountain Region (HMR), south… Expand
