Strong genetic structure corresponds to small-scale geographic breaks in the Australian alpine grasshopper Kosciuscola tristis


Mountain landscapes are topographically complex, creating discontinuous `islands’ of alpine and sub-alpine habitat with a dynamic history. Changing climatic conditions drive their expansion and contraction, leaving signatures on the genetic structure of their flora and fauna. Australia’s high country covers a small, highly fragmented area. Although the area… (More)
