Vicariance and dispersal hypotheses have been proposed over the last two hundred years to explain the distribution, diversity, and faunal composition of the Caribbean biota. Despite great advances in understanding the geological history of the region, recent biogeographical reviews have not used historical biogeographical methods. In this paper I review the taxonomy, distribution and phylogeny of all Cenozoic Caribbean non-volant mammals and four bat lineages, and present reconciled trees for… Expand
Historical Biogeography of Caribbean Plants Revises Regional Paleogeography
The Caribbean archipelago is the largest and most species rich insular system in the Neotropics, yet the origins of this biodiversity hotspot are poorly understood. Four main hypotheses have beenExpand
Evolutionary history of bulldog bats (genus Noctilio): recent diversification and the role of the Caribbean in Neotropical biogeography
TLDR
How phylogeographic studies support the identification of independent evolutionary lineages is indicated, driving new systematic/taxonomic investigations, while at the same time shed light on the role of the Caribbean in shaping Neotropical bat fauna diversity. Expand
Evidence for Miocene overwater colonization in Caribbean Cyrtognatha spiders
TLDR
The authors' analyses refute vicariance and instead support an overwater colonization to the Caribbean in mid-Miocene, suggesting a monophyletic radiation of Caribbean Cyrtognatha, containing 11 to 14 species that are exclusively single island endemics. Expand
Colonizing the Caribbean: biogeography and evolution of livebearing fishes of the genus Limia (Poeciliidae)
TLDR
The results support a colonization model for Limia that is concordant with the timing of GAARlandia and climate change during the Eocene/Oligocene boundary, and are consistent with other recent molecular clock studies of dispersal limited cichlids, toads and frogs. Expand
Causes of endemic radiation in the Caribbean: evidence from the historical biogeography and diversification of the butterfly genus Calisto (Nymphalidae: Satyrinae: Satyrini)
TLDR
Intra-island radiation caused by ecological innovation and the abiotic creation of niche spaces was found to be the main force shaping Calisto diversity and island endemism in Hispaniola and Cuba. Expand
Biogeography of the Caribbean Cyrtognatha spiders
TLDR
The results suggest a radiation of Caribbean Cyrtognatha, containing 11 to 14 species that are exclusively single island endemics, and indicate timing of colonization that is much too recent for GAARlandia to have played a role. Expand
Biogeographical patterns of the avifaunas of the Caribbean Basin Islands: a parsimony perspective
We analyzed the avifaunas of the Caribbean islands and nearby continental areas and their relationships using Parsimony Analysis of Endemicity (PAE), in order to assess biogeographical patterns andExpand
Rodents of the Caribbean: origin and diversification of hutias unravelled by next-generation museomics
TLDR
It is found that Capromyidae are nested within Echimyidae (spiny rats) and should be considered a subfamily thereof and estimated that the split between hutias and Atlantic Forest spiny rats occurred 16.5 million years ago, which would suggest that during the Early Miocene, an echimYid-like ancestor colonized the Greater Antilles from an eastern South American source population via rafting. Expand
Global biogeography of Tetragnatha spiders reveals multiple colonization of the Caribbean
TLDR
This work broadly test the monophyly of the four-jawed spiders of the Caribbean archipelago, finding low levels of endemism yet high diversity within Tetragnatha, and hypothesizes multiple colonization events to, and from the Caribbean since mid-Eocene to late-Miocene. Expand
Earth History and the Evolution of Caribbean Bats
TLDR
The phylogenies indicate that several continental bat species descended from West Indian ancestors, as the exceptionally low sea level of the Miocene transitions allowed for two-way biotic exchange between the islands and the continent. Expand

VICARIANCE AND DISPERSAL IN CARIBBEAN BIOGEOGRAPHY
TLDR
The vicariance model proposes that the present biota rep- resents the fragmented remnants of an an- cient proto-Antillean biota that was con- tinuous with those of North and South America in the late Cretaceous. Expand
HISTORICAL BIOGEOGRAPHY OF WEST INDIAN VERTEBRATES
TLDR
Molecular estimates of divergence times between island taxa and their mainland counterparts indicate a Cenozoic origin for nearly all groups examined, and data from different sources point to an origin by over 65 million years. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and the origins of placental mammals
TLDR
The potential weaknesses of limited character and taxon sampling are addressed in a comprehensive molecular phylogenetic analysis of 64 species sampled across all extant orders of placental mammals, providing new insight into the pattern of the early placental mammal radiation. Expand
Endemic African mammals shake the phylogenetic tree
TLDR
DNA sequences from three mitochondrial genes and two nuclear genes are analysed to examine relationships of insectivores to other mammals and suggest that there was an extensive African radiation from a single common ancestor that gave rise to ecologically divergent adaptive types. Expand
Zoogeography of West Indian Vertebrates in Relation to Pleistocene Climatic Cycles
TLDR
The literature on the late Pleistocene fossil record is synthesized to relate this to the influence of Pleistsocene climatic and sea level changes on vertebrate distributions in the West Indies and finds the application to be of great use in interpreting puzzling patterns of distribution. Expand
A phylogenetic supertree of the bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera)
We present the first estimate of the phylogenetic relationships among all 916 extant and nine recently extinct species of bats (Mammalia: Chiroptera), a group that accounts for almost one‐quarter ofExpand

Compilation and analysis of geographic distributions of Antillean bat species reveal two overall distribution patterns in Greater Antillean bats. In the first, found among most of the earliest knownExpand
General patterns in West Indian insects, and graphical biogeographic analysis of some circum-caribbean Platynus beetles (Carabidae)
TLDR
The relationships of the Antillean terrestrial arthropodan and onychophoran taxa are reviewed using track analysis, and the techniques of biogeographic graph analysis are compared to recent attempts at track analysis and to the methods of cladistic biogeography. Expand
Variance of molecular datings, evolution of rodents and the phylogenetic affinities between Ctenodactylidae and Hystricognathi
TLDR
The von Willebrand factor (vWF) gene has been used to understand the origin and timing of Rodentia evolution in the context of placental phylogeny and three main conclusions are drawn from the study of this nuclear exon. Expand
