On the origin of bellflowers

The bellflowers (Campanulaceae) are a diverse family of flowering plants encompassing more than 2,300 species across five major lineages. In this study, researchers use genetic sequence data and GBIF-mediated occurrences to provide new insights into the phylogeny and biogeography of Campanulaceae.

Biodiversity and biogeography of intertidal communities in the Antarctic

Marking the area between the high and low of the tide, the intertidal zone is a distinctive environment with a unique biota, often seen as the ‘canary in the coal mine’ for changes due to climate change in cool regions. This study represents a comprehensive analysis of the biodiversity and biogeography of intertidal communities in the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic regions.
