Seaweed Phylogeography: Adaptation and Evolution of Seaweeds under Environmental Change 1st ed. 2016 Edition, Kindle Edition

The book provides an overview of
research on the remarkable diversity, adaptive genetic differentiation, and
evolutionary complexity of intertidal macroalgae species. Through incorporating
molecular data, ecological niche and model-based phylogeographic inference,
this book presents the latest findings and hypotheses on the spatial
distribution and evolution of seaweeds in the context of historical climate
change (e.g. the Quaternary ice ages), contemporary global warming, and
increased anthropogenic influences. The chapters in this book highlight past
and current research on seaweed phylogeography and
predict the future trends and directions. This book frames a number of research
cases to review how biogeographic processes and interactive eco-genetic
dynamics shaped the demographic histories of seaweeds, which furthermore
enhances our understanding of speciation and diversification in the sea.
