The role of multiple Pleistocene refugia in promoting diversification in the Pacific Northwest

Megan Smith, Jessica Wallace, David Tank, Jack Sullivan & Bryan Carstens
Pleistocene glacial cycles drastically changed the distributions of taxa endemic to temperate rainforests in the Pacific Northwest, with many experiencing reduced habitat suitability during glacial periods. In this study, we investigate whether glacial cycles promoted intraspecific divergence and whether subsequent range changes led to secondary contact and gene flow. For seven invertebrate species endemic to the PNW, we estimated Species Distribution Models (SDMs) and projected them onto current and historical climate conditions to assess how...
