  • Aim We assessed the biogeographical implications of Pleistocene sea-level fluctuations on the surface area of Macaronesian volcanic oceanic islands. We quantified the effects of sea-level cycles on surface area over 1000-year intervals. Using data from the Canarian archipelago, we tested whether changes in island configuration since the late Pleistocene explain species distribution patterns. Location Thirty-one islands of four Macaronesian archipelagos (the Azores, Madeira, the Canary Islands… CONTINUE READING
