Data from: Spatial and ecological population genetic structures within two island-endemic Aeonium species of different niche width

David E. V. Harter, Mike Thiv, Alfons Weig, Anke Jentsch & Carl Beierkuhnlein
The Crassulacean genus Aeonium is a well-known example for plant species radiation on oceanic archipelagos. However, while allopatric speciation among islands is documented for this genus, the role of intra-island speciation due to population divergence by topographical isolation or ecological heterogeneity has not yet been addressed. The aim of this study was to investigate intraspecific genetic structures and to identify spatial and ecological drivers of genetic population differentiation on the island scale. We analyzed inter...
