An explicit test of Pleistocene survival in peripheral versus nunatak refugia in two high mountain plant species

Da Pan, Wolfgang Willner, Karl Hülber & Gerald M. Schneeweiss
Pleistocene climate fluctuations had profound influence on the biogeographic history of many biota. As large areas in higher latitudes and high mountain ranges were covered by glaciers, biota were forced either to peripheral refugia (and possibly beyond to lowland refugia) or to interior refugia (nunataks), but nunatak survival remains controversial as it solely relies on correlative genetic evidence. Here, we test the nunatak hypothesis using two high alpine plant species of contrasting pollination modes (insect-pollinated...
