Data from: Gastrodia putaoensis sp. nov. (Orchidaceae, Epidendroideae) from North Myanmar

Xiao-Hua Jin & Myint Kyaw
Gastrodia putaoensis, a new species from montane region in northern Myanmar, is described and illustrated. Gastrodia putaoensis is similar to Gastrodia dyeriana, but differs from it by lip narrowly triangular and subdivided into two parts, apical part near tip densely covered with yellow hairs, apex obtuse and densely covered with red papillae.

Data from: Both temperature fluctuations and East Asian monsoons have driven plant diversification in the karst ecosystems from southern China

Fabien L. Condamine, A.J. Harris, Junlin Chen, Bo Pan, Michael Moeller, Van Sam Hoang, Ming Kang, Hanghui Kong & AJ Harris
Karst ecosystems in southern China are species-rich and have high levels of endemism, yet little is known regarding the evolutionary processes responsible for the origin and diversification of karst biodiversity. The genus Primulina (Gesneriaceae) comprises ca. 170 species endemic to southern China with high levels of ecological (edaphic) specialization, providing an exceptional model to study the plant diversification in karsts. We used molecular data from nine chloroplast and 11 nuclear regions and macroevolutionary analyses to...

Data from: Speciation history of a species complex of Primulina eburnea (Gesneriaceae) from limestone karsts of south China, a biodiversity hotspot

Jing Wang, Bin Ai, Hanghui Kong & Ming Kang
Limestone karsts in southern China are characterized by high edaphic and topographic heterogeneity and host high levels of species richness and endemism. However, the evolutionary mechanisms for generating such biodiversity remain poorly understood. Here, we performed species delimitation, population genetic analyses, simulations of gene flow, and analyses of floral morphological traits to infer the geographic history of speciation in a species complex of Primulina eburnea from limestone karsts of south China. Using Bayesian species delimitation,...

Data from: Ocean currents, individual movements and genetic structuring of populations

Luis Cardona & Graeme C. Hays
Ocean currents profoundly impact all life in the oceans and over a broad size spectra species may show both horizontal and vertical movements to stay on preferred locations. As a corollary it might be expected that individuals in preferred oceanic habitats may simply drift with flows. We explored these scenarios by both satellite tracking young pelagic loggerhead turtles and examining the genetic structuring of individuals on coastal foraging areas across the Mediterranean in relation to...
