Repeated sea-level fluctuations during and prior to the Pleistocene had a dramatic effect on the distribution of land and connection among islands between the Asian and Australian continents. These cycles of connection and isolation have long been recognized as an important factor determining the distribution and organization of biodiversity in the Philippines. However, surprisingly few studies have tested for predicted patterns of genetic diversity derived from a Pleistocene sea-level model of… CONTINUE READING
