PREMISE OF THE STUDY The broad austral distribution of Schoeneae is almost certainly a product of long-distance dispersal. Owing to the inadequacies of existing phylogenetic data and a lack of rigorous biogeographic analysis, relationships within the tribe remain poorly resolved and its pattern of radiation and dispersal uncertain. We employed an expanded sampling of taxa and markers and a rigorous analytic approach to address these limitations. We evaluated the roles of geography and ecology… Expand
Global dispersal and diversification of the genus Schoenus (Cyperaceae) from the Western Australian biodiversity hotspot
The predominantly austral genus Schoenus L. is the largest genus in tribe Schoeneae and one of the ten most species‐rich Cyperaceae genera, with over 150 accepted species found mostly in Australia,Expand
A tale of worldwide success: Behind the scenes of Carex (Cyperaceae) biogeography and diversification
The megadiverse genus Carex (c. 2000 species, Cyperaceae) has a nearly cosmopolitan distribution, displaying an inverted latitudinal richness gradient with higher species diversity in cold‐temperateExpand
Biogeography of the cosmopolitan sedges (Cyperaceae) and the area‐richness correlation in plants
TLDR
It is shown that species-rich clades in Cyperaceae are not only more widespread, occupy more niche space, and diversify more quickly, but also exhibit patterns that are consistent with the partitioning of geographical and ecological space as a major correlate to diversification. Expand
Origins of the Hawaiian flora: Phylogenies and biogeography reveal patterns of long‐distance dispersal
TLDR
This assessment is complicated by lineages with ancient origins, with further complications likely stemming from hybridization events, and a higher proportion of lineages originating in the Neotropics and temperate North America are found. Expand
Evolution of geographical place and niche space: Patterns of diversification in the North American sedge (Cyperaceae) flora.
TLDR
Under this framework, the diversification of North America's third most diverse family, Cyperaceae ("sedges"), is analyzed, using a modified Parsimony Analysis of Endemicity approach to identify floristic regions and ordination statistics to quantify species distribution in a continuous manner and consistently shows that evolutionarily related species tend to be geographically unrelated. Expand
The assembly of the Cape flora is consistent with an edaphic rather than climatic filter.
TLDR
It is argued that the fynbos clades radiated separately in expanding edaphically controlled heathland patches in the Cape mountains as sandstone exhumation after the Gondwanan break-up progressed, suggesting that oligotrophic soils, rather than summer drought, acted as a filter. Expand
RAD sequencing resolves the phylogeny, taxonomy and biogeography of Trichophoreae despite a rapid recent radiation (Cyperaceae).
TLDR
A primary phylogenetic split of the Trichophoreae tribe is revealed into two clades roughly corresponding to an East Asian-North American disjunction that dates back to the Mid-Miocene, with both clades comprised of a mixture of reduced unispicate and larger taxa with highly compound inflorescences. Expand
Direct long‐distance dispersal best explains the bipolar distribution of Carex arctogena (Carex sect. Capituligerae, Cyperaceae)
TLDR
It is suggested that direct long-distance dispersal, probably southwards and mediated by birds, best explains the bipolar distribution of C. arctogena. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics of the genus Costularia (Schoeneae, Cyperaceae) reveals multiple distinct evolutionary lineages.
We investigated the monophyly of Costularia (25 species), a genus of tribe Schoeneae (Cyperaceae) that illustrates a remarkable distribution pattern from southeastern Africa, over Madagascar, theExpand
Bipolar distributions in vascular plants: A review.
TLDR
A new framework for the definition of bipolar disjunctions is proposed and a list of guiding principles to consider how to study bipolar species are reformulated, finding a predominant north-to-south direction of dispersal. Expand

Contrasted patterns of hyperdiversification in Mediterranean hotspots
TLDR
It is found that Proteaceae, a model plant group for the Mediterranean hotspots of the Southern Hemisphere with a very rich pollen fossil record, diversified under higher rates in the Cape Floristic Region and Southwest Australia than in any other area of their total distribution. Expand
The resurrection of oceanic dispersal in historical biogeography.
TLDR
The resurrection of oceanic dispersal is the most striking aspect of a major shift in historical biogeography toward a more even balance between vicariance and dispersal explanations and implies that biotas are more dynamic and have more recent origins than had been thought previously. Expand
Southern hemisphere biogeography inferred by event-based models: plant versus animal patterns.
TLDR
The results confirm the hybrid origin of the South American biota: there has been surprisingly little biotic exchange between the northern tropical and the southern temperate regions of South America, especially for animals. Expand
Origin, adaptive radiation and diversification of the Hawaiian lobeliads (Asterales: Campanulaceae)
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny is presented showing that the Hawaiian lobeliads are the product of one immigration event; that they are the largest plant clade on any single oceanic island or archipelago; and that diversification of Cyanea saturates in less than 1.5 Myr. Expand
What determines biogeographical ranges? Historical wanderings and ecological constraints in the danthonioid grasses
Aim We sought to understand the variables that limit the distribution range of a clade (here the danthonioid grasses). We tested time, area of origin, habitat suitability, disjunction width andExpand
PHYLOGENY OF ACRIDOCARPUS‐BRACHYLOPHON (MALPIGHIACEAE): IMPLICATIONS FOR TERTIARY TROPICAL FLORAS AND AFROASIAN BIOGEOGRAPHY
TLDR
Dispersal‐vicariance analysis and divergence‐time estimates suggest that the basal acridocarpoid divergence occurred between African and Southeast Asian lineages approximately 50 million years ago (mya), perhaps after a southward ancestral retreat from high‐latitude tropical forests in response to intermittent Eocene cooling.

TLDR
The results of this study clearly identify the relationships of the African-endemic schoenoid genera and demonstrate that theAfrican-Australasian genus Tetraria, like Costularia, is polyphyletic. Expand
PHYLOGENETICS OF THE GRASS GENUS EHRHARTA: EVIDENCE FOR RADIATION IN THE SUMMER‐ARID ZONE OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN CAPE
TLDR
Testing whether the comparatively high diversity of ehrharteoid grasses in the Cape region of South Africa is the result of rapid radiation associated with the onset of a seasonally arid climate during the late Miocene suggests it is, and suggests the potential importance of environmental change in powering diversification in continental floras. Expand
Cape diversification and repeated out-of-southern-Africa dispersal in paper daisies (Asteraceae-Gnaphalieae).
TLDR
The age and evolutionary history of the large daisy tribe Gnaphalieae is explored by means of a phylogenetic hypothesis based on Bayesian analysis of plastid and nuclear DNA sequences, maximum likelihood reconstruction of ancestral areas, and relaxed Bayesian dating. Expand
Biogeography of the Monimiaceae (Laurales): a role for East Gondwana and long‐distance dispersal, but not West Gondwana
TLDR
Tree topology, fossils, inferred divergence times and ances-tral area reconstruction fit with the break-up of East Gondwana having left a still discernible signature consisting of sister clades in Chile and Australia, and there is no support for previous hypotheses that the break up of West Gondawa explains disjunctions in the Monimiaceae.
