The ebook is established round valuable subject matters in evolutionary ecology: range and model. The Mediterranean quarter is a hotspot of plant biodiversity, a key factor of that's its richness in endemic species. a first-rate query motivating the 1st portion of this publication matters the position of ancient components and spatial environmental version within the evolution of such endemism. The Mediterranean panorama is usually characterized by way of dramatic diversifications in ecological stipulations, usually over brief distances. A moment concentration is at the ecological and old elements which mediate dispersal, replica, and adaptive trait edition within the Mediterranean mosaic.
This available textual content is geared toward scholars and researchers in plant evolutionary biology, ecology, biogeography, inhabitants biology, and systematics. it's going to even be of curiosity to plant scientists and botanical societies worldwide.
