What controls the distribution of the Japanese endemic hemlock, Tsuga diversifolia? Footprint of climate in the glacial period on current habitat occupancy


Plant distributions are thought to be controlled by climate at large scales, and by non-climatic factors including soil conditions, topography and biotic interactions at smaller scales. However, not all plant distributions are explained by the current environment. Lags between current plant distributions and suitable environment for them are suggested to… (More)
