Taxon pulse dynamics, episodic dispersal, and host colonization across Beringia drive diversification of a holarctic tapeworm assemblage

Aim: We test the predictions of the Stockholm Paradigm, a synthesis of eco-evolutionary theory explaining the nature of faunal assembly, host range and parasite diversification. Faunal diversification and assembly, manifested in patterns of host colonization, co-adaptation and parasite speciation, is predicted to emerge as a consequence of alternating episodes of ecological disruption and stability. Specifically, for a diverse cestode genus (Arostrilepis), we evaluate the number and direction of Pleistocene dispersal events across Beringia, the number...

Data from: Lowest drought sensitivity and decreasing growth synchrony towards the dry distribution margin of European beech

Aim: Climate limits the potential distribution ranges of species. Establishment and growth of individuals at range margins is assumed to be more limited by extreme events such as drought or frost events than in the centre of their range. We explore whether the growth of beech is more sensitive to drought towards the dry distribution margin and more sensitive to frost towards the cold distribution margin. Furthermore, we aim to gain insight into the adaptive...
