Endemism, diversification, and cryptic speciation in the Mediterranean: Evolution of the Roucela complex (Campanulaceae).

The Mediterranean Basin is one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world, harboring enumerable poorly understood, species-rich groups. Understanding evolutionary processes and species diversity is of special interest in this region given the exceptionally high degree of endemism and number of rare taxa. The Roucela clade (Campanulaceae) includes twelve currently recognized species of bellflowers found primarily in the eastern Mediterranean Basin. Previous analyses suggest one widespread taxon may represent multiple, independent lineages. We construct a phylogenomic dataset to provide insights into the role of polyploidy and cryptic speciation in this group.
