Ancient orogenic and monsoon-driven assembly of the world's richest temperate alpine flora

Wen-Na Ding, Richard H. Ree, Robert A. Spicer & Yao-Wu Xing
Understanding how alpine biotas formed in response to historical environmental change may improve our ability to predict and mitigate the threats to alpine species posed by global warming. In the world's richest temperate alpine flora, that of the Tibet-Himalaya-Hengduan region, phylogenetic reconstructions of biome and geographic range evolution show that extant lineages emerged by the early Oligocene and diversified first in the Hengduan Mountains. By the early to middle Miocene, accelerated diversification and colonization of...
