Phylogeography of California

Phylogeographic studies can be very useful in defining evolutionary significant units for conservation purposes. When concordance among divergent major clades is identified, phylogeographic studies are useful in providing the basis needed for major conservation efforts in particular regions. Many regions of high diversity are in need of further support in terms of conservation efforts that will strengthen legal protection, provide and strengthen migratory corridors, and increase the size of parks and preserves to protect biological diversity. Anthropomorphic changes to the evolutionary process that can result in a loss of biological diversity include a loss of habitat or range reduction, habitat fragmentation, hybridization of nonlocal genotypes, reduction of genetic variation, disturbance, invasive species competition, changing fire regimes, and climate changes.

Keywords:   conservation, restoration, hybridization, habitat loss, fragmentation, genotype specificity, invasive species, climate change, legislation, education
