To investigate the impacts of ancient geological and climatic events on the evolutionary history of the Aconitum nemorum species group, including A. nemorum s. str., A. karakolicum, and A. soongoricum; a total of 18 natural populations with 146 individuals were sampled, mainly from grassy slopes or the coniferous forest understory of the Tianshan Mountain Range and its surroundings. Two cpDNA intergenic spacer regions (trnS-trnG and psbA-trnH) were sequenced and 16 haplotypes were identified… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Phylogeography of the arid shrub Atraphaxis frutescens (Polygonaceae) in northwestern China: evidence from cpDNA sequences.
TLDR
It is suggested that intraspecific differentiation of the species, resulting from isolated populations, accompanied enhanced desertification during the middle and late Pleistocene, and is likely to have generated recent expansion of A. frutescens. Expand
Chloroplast phylogeographic patterns of Calligonum sect. Pterococcus (Polygonaceae) in arid Northwest China
TLDR
Mismatch distribution analysis suggested that only C. aphyllum has experienced recent demographic expansion, and within the two clades, haplotype divergence began in early Pleistocene and mainly occurred during the middle to late Pleistsocene and was most likely triggered by Quaternary climatic oscillations and increasing aridity of the region. Expand
Phylogeography of two closely related species of Allium endemic to East Asia: Population evolution in response to climate oscillations
TLDR
The results suggest the speciation event of the two species was triggered by violent climatic changes during the Quaternary glaciation, suggesting a significant phylogeographic structure. Expand
Phylogeographic patterns of the desert poplar in Northwest China shaped by both geology and climatic oscillations
TLDR
These results indicate that the deformation of the Tianshan Mountains has impeded gene flow of the Euphrates poplar populations from northern and southern Xinjiang, and the distribution constriction due to climatic oscillations further accelerated the divergence of populations from these regions. Expand
Tertiary montane origin of the Central Asian flora, evidence inferred from cpDNA sequences of Atraphaxis (Polygonaceae).
TLDR
The origin of Atraphaxis is confirmed as montane, with an ancestral area consisting of the Junggar Basin and uplands of the Pamir-Tianshan-Alatau-Altai mountain chains, and ancestral ecotype of montane forest. Expand
Introgression of phylogeography lineages of Convolvulus gortschakovii (Convolvulaceae) in the northwest China
TLDR
According to the influence of mountains on the present conformation of genetic structure of C. gortschakovii, it is inferred that Eurasian forest subkingdom plays an important role in the genetic diversity and dispersal of xerophytes of Asian desert flora subkingdoms. Expand
Long-Distance Dispersal after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) Led to the Disjunctive Distribution of Pedicularis kansuensis (Orobanchaceae) between the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and Tianshan Region
TLDR
It is concluded that P. kansuensis colonized the TSR after the LGM, and the improbable long-distance dispersal by wind or water across arid land seed flow may well have had birds or men as vector. Expand
High genetic diversity in an endangered medicinal plant, Saussurea involucrata (Saussurea, Asteraceae), in western Tianshan Mountains, China
TLDR
The results suggested that in situ conservation of S. involucrata in western Tianshan should be the main strategy for protection and recovery of the species. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny and Population Structure of Aconitum carmichaelii ( Fuzi ) in Western China
Aconitum carmichaelii Debx. is a traditional Chinese medicinal herb. Its lateral root, named as Fuzi, has been cultivated manually for thousands of years. Recently, Fuzi agriculture is more and moreExpand
Plant phylogeography in arid Northwest China: Retrospectives and perspectives
Despite the absence of major Quaternary glaciations in arid Northwest China, significant climatic oscillations definitely impacted the evolution of the biota in situ. Phylogeography has grown as aExpand

Phylogeographic and demographic effects of Quaternary climate oscillations in Hexinia polydichotoma (Asteraceae) in Tarim Basin and adjacent areas
TLDR
Examination of the phylogeographic structure and historical factors that influenced the evolutionary history of Hexinia polydichotoma in its entire cover range, Tarim Basin and adjacent areas suggests that genetic variation primarily occurs among populations, and all populations were subdivided into five groups by SAMOVA.

Genetic structure of the Delphinium naviculare species group tracks Pleistocene climatic oscillations in the Tianshan Mountains, arid Central Asia
Abstract Pleistocene climatic fluctuations have affected the evolution of the genetic structure of many organisms. In this study, we test the hypothesis that glacial–interglacial cycles are traceableExpand
Phylogeography of Lagochilus ilicifolius (Lamiaceae) in relation to Quaternary climatic oscillation and aridification in northern China
TLDR
A phylogeographical study of L. ilicifolius with 168 individuals from 14 populations was performed to assess geographical patterns and genetic variation in relation to past climate change, suggesting Climatic oscillation, aridification, and desert expansion within these regions have molded current distribution and biodiversity of the species. Expand
Phylogeography and allopatric divergence of cypress species (Cupressus L.) in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and adjacent regions
TLDR
It is concluded that the formation of high mountain barriers separating deep valleys in the QTP and adjacent regions caused by various uplifts of the plateau since the early Miocene most likely promoted allopatric divergence in Cupressus by restricting gene flow and fixing local, species-specific haplotypes in geographically isolated populations. Expand
History and evolution of alpine plants endemic to the Qinghai‐Tibetan Plateau: Aconitum gymnandrum (Ranunculaceae)
TLDR
A survey of chloroplast DNA and nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) DNA variation aimed at exploring the phylogeographical history of the QTP alpine endemic Aconitum gymnandrum suggests that at least some of these cold‐tolerant species may have also survived centrally on theQTP platform throughout the Quaternary.

Response of a desert shrub to past geological and climatic change: A phylogeographic study of Reaumuria soongarica (Tamaricaceae) in western China
TLDR
This is the first study to show that the evolutionary history of plants in desert habitats has been seriously affected by past geological and climatic change, and major partitioning of the cpDNA variation between regions is shown. Expand
Chloroplast phylogeny and phylogeography of Stellera chamaejasme on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and in adjacent regions.
TLDR
The present wide distribution of this species on the Q-T Plateau platform and in northern China is likely to have resulted from a rapid post-glacial population expansion from the southeastern refugium involving founder effects, facilitated by the adjacent geographic range with a similar grassland habitat. Expand
Species‐level phylogeographical history of Myricaria plants in the mountain ranges of western China and the origin of M. laxiflora in the Three Gorges mountain region
TLDR
The data suggest that M. laxiflora has an ancient origin, but has experienced recent population expansion through the Three Gorges Valley, and the deep imprint of the watercourse connections of the Yangtze River Valley on the phylogeographical structure of the species in this region. Expand
Speciation in the Rana chensinensis species complex and its relationship to the uplift of the Qinghai–Tibetan Plateau
TLDR
An investigation into speciation in the Rana chensinensis species complex using DNA sequence data from one mitochondrial and five nuclear genes revealed four major clades in the complex, and each was found to likely represent a species, including one cryptic species. Expand
Plant recolonization in the Himalaya from the southeastern Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau: Geographical isolation contributed to high population differentiation.
TLDR
Results clearly indicate that T. dumosa recolonized the Himalaya from the Hengduan Mountains before the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), accompanied with strong founder effects, and the influence of the earlier glaciations on demographic histories of the QTP plants could be much stronger than that of the LGM.
