|Summary of thesis||
The proposed project combines phylogeographical and landscape genetic approaches to address a set of questions focusing on speciation processes on local to global scales. This research proposal builds on my knowledge and specimen accessibility in a group that will serve as a promising model of evolution. In particular, this research intends to associate one of the fundamental issues inferring relationships between taxa with key evolutionary processes responsible in adaptation to particular environmental conditions.
