This chapter summarizes the evidence from molecular studies on the causes of animal diversity and endemism in California. It begins by considering studies that have sought broad patterns across multiple groups of animals. It then considers levels and causes of Californian endemism in individual groups of animals: mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, insects, arachnids, and other invertebrates.

Keywords:   evolution, endemism, mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, invertebrates
