Spatial genetic variation within species is influenced by both contemporary and historical factors. We attempted to assess the impact of increased aridity and lower temperatures associated with the last glacial maximum on possible refugia and the structuring of genetic variation in Banksia hookeriana, a shrub species restricted to deep sands on the Eneabba sandplain and adjacent Gingin Scarp/Dandaragan Plateau, centred 300 km north of Perth, Western Australia. We used optically stimulated… Expand
Morphological and molecular variation in Conospermum triplinervium(Proteaceae), the tree smokebush: Implications for bushland restoration
TLDR
In the longer term, should the Bold Park population show evidence of declining viability, then material should be sourced from the genetically similar Kings Park population to increase genetic variation whilst also maintaining genetic integrity. Expand
Phylogeography and population differentiation in terrestrial island populations of Banksia arborea (Proteaceae)
TLDR
Banksia arborea showed low genetic diversity in (cp)DNA and a complex structural pattern, with genetic differentiation of some BIF populations and an absence of differentiation amongst others, reflecting either retention of ancestral polymorphism across northern Bif populations or more recent connectivity of these populations. Expand
High genetic diversity in a clonal relict Alexgeorgea nitens (Restionaceae): implications for ecological restoration
TLDR
The results show high levels of genetic diversity within populations, and surprisingly low levels of population differentiation, suggesting that the high genetic diversity observed within these populations reflects extensive pollen dispersal and successful seeding and recruitment events, even though direct observations of seedling recruitment are rare.

Ecological genetics of the wind-pollinated, tetraploid, Allocasuarina emuina L. Johnson (Casuarinaceae) from southeast Queensland reveals montane refugia for coastal heath during the last interglacial
TLDR
Investigation of the reproductive ecology, in relation to fire, and population genetic structure of the endangered shrub Allocasuarina emuina and genetic signatures in the northern populations indicated that unidirectional dispersal of genetic material from the putatively refugial population on Mt Emu to the surrounding coastal plain has been occurring with recession of sea levels following the last interglacial. Expand
Genetic connectivity and inter-population seed dispersal of Banksia hookeriana at the landscape scale.
TLDR
The results show that genetic structure in an apparently strongly spatially structured landscape is not solely dependent on landscape structure, and that many physically defined geographical populations were genetic mosaics. Expand
Genetic evidence for the origins of range disjunctions in the Australian dry sclerophyll plant Hardenbergia violacea
TLDR
The genetic evidence indicates that the Tasmanian population is likely to be indigenous and probably the product of vicariance, which was followed by range contraction at the Last Glacial Maximum or an earlier glacial event, and the deep phylogenetic disjunction in South Australia is evidence of a much earlier separation on mainland Australia. Expand
Record error and range contraction, real and imagined, in the restricted shrub Banksia hookeriana in south-western Australia
TLDR
Impacts on the species' geographical range by land clearance for farming and mining, and by altered fire regime, were investigated using three lines of evidence: records of herbarium collections, a comprehensive field survey of extant populations, and air photo and satellite images revealing the recent history of land clearance and fires.

Low Rate of Between-Population Seed Dispersal Restricts Genetic Connectivity and Metapopulation Dynamics in a Clonal Shrub
TLDR
The low rate of interpopulation dispersal was supported by an analysis of the age structure of three populations that suggests a mean interdune migration rate of <800 m in 200 years, and 60% of suitable dunes remain uninhabited, and Banksia candolleana has poor properties for promoting long-distance dispersal. Expand
Ants cannot account for interpopulation dispersal of the arillate pea Daviesia triflora.
TLDR
The observed distances of seed dispersal in this arillate species demonstrate the significance of nonstandard dispersal mechanisms in LDD and the independence of these from primary dispersal syndromes. Expand
The impacts of environmental change on dispersal of large-seeded forest species by the emu
TLDR
The population dynamics of four large-seeded species within the jarrah (Eucalyptus marginata) forests of southwestern Australia was investigated within areas of contrasting high/low emu abundance, showing that the emu is a highly mobile and effective LDD vector, and could disperse many seeds > 1500 m from the parent plant and up to a maximum dispersal distance of ca.

Genetic Variation and Biogeographic History in the Restricted Southwestern Australian Shrub, Banksia Hookeriana
TLDR
Preliminary interpretation suggests that populations on the Eneabba Plain may have expanded there from refugia on the Gingin Scarp following postglacial climate amelioration and dune stabilization, however, the tree is unrooted and differences between upland and plains populations may also reflect different selection pressures reflecting habitat variation. Expand
Long‐distance seed dispersal in a metapopulation of Banksia hookeriana inferred from a population allocation analysis of amplified fragment length polymorphism data
TLDR
The extent of long‐distance interpopulation seed dispersal observed provides a basis for explaining the survival of populations of the fire‐killed B. hookeriana in a landscape experiencing frequent fire, where local extinctions and recolonizations may be a regular occurrence. Expand
Comparative phylogeography and postglacial colonization routes in Europe
TLDR
A Brooks parsimony analysis produced an unrooted area phylogram, showing that: (i) the northern regions were colonized generally from the Iberic and Balkanic refugia; and (ii) the Italian lineages were often isolated due to the presence of the Alpine barrier. Expand
Temporal patterns of genetic variation across a 9‐year‐old aerial seed bank of the shrub Banksia hookeriana (Proteaceae)
TLDR
Variable fire frequencies have only limited potential to influence the amount of genetic variation stored within the seed bank of B. hookeriana, and results suggest that viability of seeds decreased with age, such that the viability of 9‐year-old seeds was half that of 2‐year‐old seeds. Expand
Phylogeography and divergence in the chloroplast genome of Western Australian Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum)
TLDR
The phylogeographic pattern in the chloroplast genome is congruent with that detected in the nuclear genome, which identified different genetic influences between the regions and also suggested a more recent expansion of sandalwood in the southern region. Expand
The Southwest Australian Floristic Region: Evolution and Conservation of a Global Hot Spot of Biodiversity
TLDR
Molecular phylogenies suggest multiple dispersal events into, out of, and within the SWAFR throughout the Cretaceous and Cenozoic; in many phylogenetically unrelated clades; and from many directions. Expand
Phylogeographical analysis of cpDNA variation in Eucalyptus loxophleba (Myrtaceae)
TLDR
Congruence of phylogeographic patterns in the three species provides evidence to support the hypothesis of significant influence of climatic instability during the Pleistocene caused by cyclic contraction and expansion of the mesic and arid zones. Expand
Anthropogenic disturbance promotes hybridization between Banksia species by altering their biology
TLDR
It is concluded that anthropogenic disturbance promotes hybridization through increasing opportunities for gene flow by reducing interpopulation separation, increasing gamete production and, especially, promoting coflowering. Expand
Phylogeographical patterns in chloroplast DNA variation within the Acacia acuminata (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae) complex in Western Australia
TLDR
The pattern of shared haplotypes between lineages suggests retention of ancestral polymorphism as a result of incomplete lineage sorting and the divergence of these lineages is consistent with fragmentation caused by climatic instability during the Pleistocene. Expand
A Phylogeographic Analysis of Allozyme Variation among Populations of Persoonia mollis (Proteaceae)
TLDR
Trees constructed using UPGMA, maximum likelihood (CONTML) and maximum parsimony (FREQPARS) procedures indicated that evolutionary rates are probably heterogeneous in different lineages in P. mollis, and that the UPG MA tree is inaccurate as it assumes constant evolutionary rates in all lineages.
