Persisting in a glaciated landscape: Pleistocene microrefugia evidenced by the tree wētā Hemideina maori in central South Island, New Zealand

Keith King, Debbie Lewis, Jonathan Waters & Graham Wallis
Aim: Repeated cycles of Pleistocene glaciation have influenced phylogeographic structure of taxa on New Zealand’s South Island. Many taxa became restricted to refugia at either end of the island during glaciation, resulting in an area of low endemicity in central South Island. This area of low endemism is typified by the so-called beech (or biotic) gap, where the absence of Nothofagus forest (and many other plant and invertebrate taxa) has been attributed to repeated glaciation....
