Evolutionary history and eco-climatic diversification in southern African Sisyphus (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae)

Gimo Daniel, Adrian Davis, Catherine Sole & Clarke Scholtz
Aim: The high diversity of species in southern Africa has been attributed to geological and palaeoclimatic factors. The timing of radiations in some groups is held to be linked to these geoclimatic trends. Using the Scarabaeinae dung beetle genus, Sisyphus, as a model system, we investigate how geological uplift and climatic changes in the late Cenozoic affected its diversification patterns in southern Africa. Location: southern Africa. Taxon: The dung beetle genus, Sisyphus Latreille, 1807 (Coleoptera:...
