Vicariance biogeography in the Pleistocene and speciation in North American wood warblers: a test of Mengel's model.

Abstract

It is widely believed that habitat fragmentation during the Pleistocene initiated speciation events in many songbird genera. One such vicariance model for avian speciation in the Pleistocene was developed by R. M. Mengel for North American birds. This model suggests that the first Pleistocene glacial advance reduced the area of an extensive, eastern North… (More)
