Unravelling the evolutionary history and future prospects of endemic species


We used an integrated approach, combining markers with different evolutionary rates and combining phylogenetic analysis with approximate Bayesian computation and species distribution modelling across temporal scales. We related

Contrasting population-level responses to Pleistocene climatic changes in widely distributed species


We sequenced the complete mitochondrial genome of a widely distributed Palearctic bat restricted to mountain ranges, the alpine long-eared bat, Plecotus macrobullaris. We integrated ecological niche modelling, approximate Bayesian

Shaping of genetic variation in edge of range populations under past and future climate change

Razgour et al. 2013_Phylogegoraphy_Plecotus_austriacus

We combined genetic analysis with ecological niche modelling across temporal scales and Approximate Bayesian Computation model-based inference of evolutionary history to research the effects of past

Combining genetic and environmental data with spatial modelling and inference of evolutionary history to show how past climatic changes shaped patterns of genetic variation.
