Aim In this study we evaluate patterns of endemism for benthic polychaete species along the southeastern Pacific coast of Chile. Our goals were (1) to describe latitudinal gradients of endemism and identify areas of high endemism, (2) to evaluate the effect of biogeographical limits on endemism patterns, and (3) to evaluate indirectly the role played by evolutionary dynamics on patterns of endemism. Location South-eastern Pacific coast of Chile, ranging from Arica (18� S) to Cape Horn (56� S… Expand

Biogeography of Chilean herpetofauna: distributional patterns of species richness and endemism
TLDR
The richness and endemism patterns registered for Chilean herpetological taxa may be explained by an historical mechanism, in accordance with previous biogeographical proposals, and inclusion of new protected areas at the regional level for the Mediterranean region of south-central Chile and for local northern and southern quadrats with high species richness andEndemism is suggested.

Is the ubiquitous distribution real for marine gastrotrichs? Detection of areas of endemism using Parsimony Analysis of Endemicity (PAE)
TLDR
To assess the validity of EiE hypotheses on marine gastrotrichs, Parsimony Analysis of Endemism (PAE) was applied and some level of endemism was found and the ubiquitous distribution of Gastrotrich species is strongly questioned. Expand
PAPER An inverse latitudinal gradient of diversity of peracarid crustaceans along the Pacific Coast of South America: out of the deep south
TLDR
It is proposed that the southern region may be a source of evolutionary novelties and/or exhibit higher diversification rates and phylogenetic conservatism of latitudinal range may limit the geographic expansion of these new taxa towards the depauperated northern region. Expand
Biogeography of Atlantic and Mediterranean ascidians
TLDR
Distribution patterns of the Ascidiacea, in general, followed previously proposed divisions of regions and provinces in the Atlantic and adjacent polar regions, but not subdivisions of these regions. Expand
Geographical patterns in species richness of the benthic polychaetes in the continental shelf of the Gulf of California, Mexican Pacific
TLDR
Although the species richness pattern could be described by a parabolic shape, the regional trend was not strongly consistent with the peak of diversity at 27°N predicted by the mid-domain effect: the random sorting of species’ ranges within spatial domain does not explain satisfactorily the geographical patterns of diversity.

Latitudinal diversity patterns of Chilean coastal fishes: searching for causal processes
TLDR
Overall, richness was observed to progressively decrease toward higher latitudes, but values for intertidal fish in particular decreased towards the north and south from the point of maximum richness, which is a pattern that has already been recorded for other intert tidal organisms. Expand
Benthic Peracarids (Crustacea) from an unexplored area of Patagonian channels and Fjords
TLDR
A dataset providing the first and only records of the benthic Peracarida between the latitudes 48–51.5°S of the Pacific coast of Chile is presented, closing a geospatial gap for the study of the biogeographical connections of the Peracareida along the Eastern Pacific coast. Expand
Genetic identification of benthic polychaetes in a biodiversity hotspot in the southeast Pacific
TLDR
The results support the role of the COI gene as a useful molecular marker for fast and accurate taxonomic determination of benthic polychaetes in the Chiloe Inner Sea as a particularly important zone for polychaete fauna of the southeast Pacific. Expand
Identification of Generalized Tracks for the Species of Isopoda (Peracarida) from the Eastern Pacific
Abstract A panbiogeographic analysis of the distributional patterns of 196 species of eastern Pacific Isopoda led to the recognition of three generalized tracks, which correspond to major bioticExpand

Distribution patterns and biogeographic analysis of Austral Polychaeta (Annelida)
TLDR
The Greater New Zealand region is found to be ‘monophyletic’ with respect to polychaetes, that is comprising a genuine biogeographical entity, and most closely related to the polychaete fauna of southern Australia. Expand
Cladistic analysis of distributions and endemism (CADE): using raw distributions of birds to unravel the biogeography of the South American aridlands

Biogeographic area relationships of lowland Neotropical rainforest based on raw distributions of vertebrate groups
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of the distribution of 335 anuran species showed two regions that form a basal dichotomy: Central America + Choco and Amazon Basin + Brazilian Atlantic Forest, which is interpreted as the first vicariance event that separated lowland Neotropical rainforests into Cis- and Trans-Andean areas.

Patterns of diversification within continental biotas: Hierarchical congruence among the areas of endemism of Australian vertebrates
TLDR
Investigation of the extent to which there is hierarchical information about area-relationships contained in the distributions of Australian vertebrates found Distributions of birds and mammals were found to be nearly identical in their hierarchical pattern, and snakes shared the same general pattern of area- relationships.

Biogeographic relationships of the Galapagos terrestrial biota: parsimony analyses of endemicity based on reptiles, land birds and Scalesia land plants
TLDR
Genus distribution-based PAE results suggest that Galapagos archipelago was settled by South American reptiles, and supports previously published phylogeny-based biogeographic analyses and corroborates them with an independent evidence. Expand
Parsimony Analysis of Endemicity (PAE) of Mexican hydrological basins based on helminth parasites of freshwater fishes
TLDR
The cladogram suggests that the treatment of the Lerma-Santiago basin as a single biogeographical unit is inaccurate and that they should be treated as separate systems, providing support for a Mesoamerican province based on helminth parasites of cichlids. Expand
Patterns of endemism and comparative phylogeography confirm palaeo- environmental evidence for Pleistocene refugia in the Eastern Alps
TLDR
Test hypotheses on Pleistocene refugia for mountain plants in the eastern part of the European Alps derived from palaeoenvironmental and geological results are tested, with new data on distributional patterns of vascular plant endemics and molecular phylogeographies of selected species. Expand
Marine macroalgal biodiversity hotspots: why is there high species richness and endemism in southern Australian marine benthic flora?
TLDR
It is now evident that the high species richness and endemism observed in the southern Australian marine macroalgal flora can be attributed to a complex interaction of biogeographical, ecological and phylogenetic processes over the last 160 million years. Expand
