Table 1 The BioGeoBEARS results showing significant dispersal and vicariance events

From: Climatic and topographic changes since the Miocene influenced the diversification and biogeography of the tent tortoise (Psammobates tentorius) species complex in Southern Africa

  1. The hypothetical RASP habitat reconstruction history together with its probability is shown. The reconstruction used the seven geographic regions, three biomes and the three regions separated by the Great Escarpment and Swartberg Mountain. “ |” indicates geographic isolation, “ – > ” indicate directional changing of the RASP route
