Long-distance Dispersal from the Mediterranean into North America: Uncovering the Evolutionary History of Legousia and Triodanis (Campanulaceae).

The Campanuloideae (Campanulaceae) are a diverse clade found primarily in the Northern Hemisphere with a center of diversity in the Mediterranean region. One clade of particular interest is the Legousia-Triodanis complex, composed of taxa distributed in arid areas of southern North America and the Mediterranean climate zone of Eurasia and northern Africa. In this study we use targeted sequencing of chloroplast and nuclear markers to better understand the relationship between and within these taxa and the historical processes that may have led to the Madrean-Tethyan-like disjunction observed in this group.
