Recent human activities have spread numerous plant species across the globe, yet it is unclear to what degree historical human activities influenced plant dispersal. In western North America, Camassia quamash was one of the most important food plants for indigenous peoples, who transported its propagules either intentionally or accidentally. We investigated how human and natural dispersal might have contributed to the current pattern of spatial genetic structure in C. quamash by performing… Expand
Comparative phylogeography of two African carnivorans presumably introduced into Europe: disentangling natural versus human-mediated dispersal across the Strait of Gibraltar
TLDR
The results refute the idea that H. ichneumon was introduced into Europe contemporaneously with G. genetta and support a scenario of sweepstake dispersal during Late Pleistocene sea-level fluctuations, followed by long-term in situ evolution throughout the last glaciation cycles. Expand
Refugial persistence and postglacial recolonization of North America by the cold‐tolerant herbaceous plant Orthilia secunda
TLDR
Analysis of the refugial and recolonization history of the herbaceous plant species Orthilia secunda in North America suggests that O. secunda persisted through the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) in western refugia, even though palaeodistribution modelling indicated a suitable climate envelope across the entire south of the continent. Expand
Stepping‐stone expansion and habitat loss explain a peculiar genetic structure and distribution of a forest insect
TLDR
The progressive reduction of suitable habitats is suggested to explain the genetic structure of the populations and it is suggested that T. pinivora is a cold‐tolerant relict species, with situation‐dependent dispersal. Expand
Genetic Structure of Earthworm Populations at a Regional Scale: Inferences from Mitochondrial and Microsatellite Molecular Markers in Aporrectodea icterica (Savigny 1826)
TLDR
Investigation of the genetic structure of seven populations of a common endogeic earthworm sampled in northern France to explore how historical species range changes, microevolutionary processes and human activities interact in shaping genetic variation at a regional scale suggested that dispersal is haphazard and that human activities favour passive dispersal among geographically distant populations. Expand
Phylogeography based on intraspecific sequence variation in chloroplast DNA of Miscanthus sinensis (Poaceae), a native pioneer grass in Japan
TLDR
It is possible that lineages that originated in subtropical areas of mainland China migrated into the Ryukyu Islands via Taiwan and then expanded throughout Japan through two major haplotypes. Expand
Fern and lycophyte diversity in the Pacific Northwest: Patterns and predictors
TLDR
Evidence is found for the influence of past glaciations and glacial refugia on the patterns of pteridophyte diversity, that moisture availability and cold temperatures are strongly correlated with patterns of genus richness, phylogenetic diversity, and phylogenetic endemism, and it is infer that the topographic complexity of the region may be driving the assembly of the pteridine flora indirectly by influencing climate and precipitation patterns.

Harvesting strategies as evidence for 4000 years of camas (Camassia quamash) management in the North American Columbia Plateau
TLDR
This approach to tracking forager plant management practices offers an alternative explanatory framework to conventional management studies, supplements oral histories of Indigenous traditional resource management and can be applied to other vegetatively propagated species. Expand
Development of 16 microsatellite markers within the Camassia (Agavaceae) species complex and amplification in related taxa1
TLDR
These microsatellite markers exhibit variation and are useful for ongoing studies of integrative taxonomy and population differentiation within this species complex. Expand
The Archaeology of Camas Production and Exchange on the Northwest Coast: With Evidence from a Sts'ailes (Chehalis) Village on the Harrison River, British Columbia
TLDR
Evidence for a concentration of camas bulbs found in an earth oven complex within an ancient Sts'ailes (Chehalis) village in the Upper Fraser Valley of southwestern British Columbia, Canada is presented. Expand
Multilocus phylogenetic inference in subfamily Chlorogaloideae and related genera of Agavaceae - informing questions in taxonomy at multiple ranks.
TLDR
This study produced the first phylogenetic hypotheses across Hesperaloe, allowing initial tests of several taxonomic disagreements within this genus, and reveals the lack of cohesion of H. funifera, indicating that H.funifera may be more closely related to H. campanulata than toH. Expand

Refugia in the Cordilleran ice sheet of western North America: chloroplast DNA diversity in the Arctic–alpine plant Oxyria digyna
Aim  Late Pleistocene ice sheets are thought to have covered most of western Canada, including all of British Columbia (BC). We examine patterns of genetic variation in an Arctic–alpine plant toExpand
Identification of refugia and post-glacial colonisation routes of European white oaks based on chloroplast DNA and fossil pollen evidence
TLDR
Drawing conclusions on the location of glacial period refugia and the colonisation routes derived from molecular information and fossil pollen data appear to be both largely compatible and complementary. Expand
Did Native Americans influence the northward migration of plants during the Holocene
TLDR
Historical literature was examined for evidence of non-cultigen dispersal or cultivation in North America's eastern woodlands but the likelihood of widespread long-distance plant dispersal by Native Americans could not be determined using historical literature. Expand

INVESTIGATING THE EVOLUTIONARY HISTORY OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST MESIC FOREST ECOSYSTEM: HYPOTHESIS TESTING WITHIN A COMPARATIVE PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC FRAMEWORK
TLDR
Analysis of mesic forest ecosystems in the Pacific Northwest of North America using a statistical phylogeography approach shows that genetic data sampled from across an ecosystem can provide insight into the evolution of ecological communities and suggests that the advantages of a statistical phylogenetic and coalescent approach are most pronounced in comparisons across multiple taxa in a particular ecosystem.

Chloroplast DNA intraspecific phylogeography of plants from the Pacific Northwest of North America
TLDR
The data suggest strongly that past glaciation profoundly influenced the genetic architecture of the flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest, with populations surviving in several well-isolated northern and southern refugia and Pleistocence glaciation molded the intraspecific genetic Architecture of both plants and animals in a geographically similar manner.

The results are largely consistent with Gould's views that the genus originated in southwestern Oregon and diversified through eastern migration, and that C. scilloides and C. cusickii are derived from within C. quamash. Expand
