Biotic exchange leaves detectable genomic patterns in the Australian rainforest flora

Jia-Yee Yap, Marlien Van Der Merwe, Andrew Ford, Robert Henry & Maurizio Rossetto
The movement (or invasion) of plant lineages from Sunda (the Malay Archipelago) into Sahul (mainland Australia) has resulted in a present-day Australian rainforest flora of mixed ancestries. Floristic integration increased during the Quaternary when continental vegetation was subjected to recurrent expansion/contraction cycles. To date, this expansion history has yet to be investigated through multi-species, landscape-level genetic analyses within tropical Northern Australia, presumably the main point of contact for Sunda lineages. Here, we characterise and compare...
