About this book

Seaweed Phylogeography 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, Seaweed Phylogeography 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 Seaweed Phylogeography highlight past and current research on seaweed phylogeography and predict the future trends and directions. Seaweed Phylogeography 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.


Part I. The field of phylogeographic research on seaweeds
Part II. Seaweed at sea: floating as a dispersal mechanism
Part III. Invasive seaweeds
Part IV. Comparative phylogeography of seaweeds
Part V. Troubleshooting new genomic approaches for seaweeds
