The influence of history, geography and environment on patterns of diversification in the western terrestrial garter snake

Joshua Hallas, Thomas Parchman & Chris Feldman
Aim: A central aim of biogeography is to understand how biodiversity is generated and maintained across landscapes. Here, we establish phylogenetic and population genetic patterns in a widespread reptile to quantify the influence of historical biogeography and current environmental variation on patterns of genetic diversity. Location: Western North America. Taxon: Western terrestrial garter snake, Thamnophis elegans. Methods: We used double-digest RADseq to estimate phylogenetic relationships and characterize population genetic structure across the three widespread subspecies...
