Aim  To reconstruct the temporal, geographical and eco‐climatological differentiation of the genus Anthemis (Compositae, Anthemideae) in the circum‐Mediterranean region, in order to evaluate the relative importance of geographical vs. climatological differentiation processes in influencing the actual distribution patterns in this plant group. 
The central Mediterranean as a phytodiversity hotchpotch: phylogeographical patterns of the Anthemis secundiramea group (Compositae, Anthemideae) across the Sicilian Channel
TLDR
The phylogeography of the Anthemis’secundiramea group (Compositae, Anthemideae) is investigated to assess the role of palaeogeographical events in its genetic and taxonomic differentiation and the contribution of hybridization to the complexity of these diversification processes in an area of phytogeographical overlap.
The historical biogeography of Scabiosa (Dipsacaceae): implications for Old World plant disjunctions
TLDR
Members of Scabiosa appear to have capitalized on adaptations to montane and/or dry conditions in order to colonize similar habitats in different biogeographical regions.
Diversification patterns and processes of wingless endemic insects in the Mediterranean Basin: historical biogeography of the genus Blaps (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
TLDR
The historical patterns of temporal and geographical diversification of Mediterranean Blaps (Tenebrionidae), a diverse group of flightless beetles, are analyzed, their date of origin and colonization of the MB are estimated, and temporal changes in diversification rates are tracked.
Insights into Neogene Mediterranean biogeography based on phylogenetic relationships of mountain and lowland lineages of Narcissus (Amaryllidaceae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of daffodils (Narcissus), focusing on the lowland subgenus Hermione and the mountain section Apodanthi, are reconstructed and the microevolutionary differentiation of the wide‐ranging Narcissus tazetta group across the Mediterranean is examined.
Geography, environment and organismal traits in the diversification of a major tropical herbaceous angiosperm radiation
TLDR
The terrestrial bromeliads are a diverse group of plants native to the Americas and closely related species in large genera tend to show differentiation in their climatic preferences.
On the taxonomic position of Tanacetum funkii (Anthemideae, Compositae)
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis based on nrDNA ITS sequence variation of representatives of Anthemideae (Compositae) was carried out together with morphological analyses of the type material, and T. funkii is transferred to the genus Anthemis L. and placed in the synonymy of Anthemis cotula.
Contrasting evolutionary hypotheses between two mediterranean‐climate floristic hotspots: the Cape of southern Africa and the Mediterranean Basin
TLDR
The Cape has a higher species density than the Mediterranean Basin owing to a combination of older clade ages, high rates of diversification in certain lineages and an exceptionally high upper limit to diversity.
The origin of plants endemic to the Mediterranean and Irano-Turanian floristic regions: case studies from the citrus family (rutaceae)
  • G. Salvo

  • 2010
TLDR
Analysis of patterns of biotic assembly in the Mediterranean region, with special emphasis on the effect of earth processes on species origins and distribution, the origin of species endemic to islands, and the biogeographic links between the Mediterranean and Irano-Turanian regions, showed that Ruta invaded the Mediterranean Region from the north before the onset of the current Mediterranean climate.
Climatic niche evolution in the Andean genus Menonvillea (Cremolobeae: Brassicaceae)
TLDR
Molecular phylogenies together with climatic data suggested that climatic niche evolution in Menonvillea exhibited some degree of phylogenetic niche conservatism, fundamentally within the two main lineages (sect. Men onvillea and sects).

Genetic structure of Hypochaeris uniflora (Asteraceae) suggests vicariance in the Carpathians and rapid post‐glacial colonization of the Alps from an eastern Alpine refugium
TLDR
The aim of the present study is to compare the genetic variation of the subalpine species Hypochaeris uniflora in two major European mountain systems – the Alps and the Carpathians.

Dispersal vs. vicariance in the Mediterranean: historical biogeography of the Palearctic Pachydeminae (Coleoptera, Scarabaeoidea)
TLDR
Although the basal diversification of Pachydeminae around the Mediterranean appears to be related to vicariance events linked to the geological formation of the Mediterranean Basin, dispersal has also played a very important role.
Temporal and spatial diversification of Circum‐Mediterranean Compositae‐Anthemideae
TLDR
The reconstructions suggest that the ancestor of this clade diverged from the basal African lineages in the late Early Miocene, presumably in conjunction with the collision of the African and Eurasian platform through the Arabian plate.
Ecological niche differentiation in the Aphelocoma jays: a phylogenetic perspective
TLDR
A second molecular data set is presented – 500 bases of the ND2 gene – and analysed cladistically to arrive at a new hypothesis of phylogenetic relationships of Aphelocoma jays and it is shown to consist of drastic departures from rate-uniformity and ecological niche conservatism.

Intercontinental Correlation of Geographical Ranges Suggests Stasis in Ecological Traits of Relict Genera of Temperate Perennial Herbs
TLDR
It is suggested that stasis goes hand in hand with ecological specialization; some restricted subsets of ecological conditions to which herbs are specialized may persist within a changing ecological mosaic.
