Evolution and biogeography of endemic taxa within the Roucela aggregate (Campanulaceae: Campanuloideae) in the Eastern Mediterranean region.

The Campanuloideae (Campanulaceae) are a highly diverse group in the Mediterranean region and include the polyphyletic Campanula with approximately 120 species found in Greece alone and an exceptionally high degree of endemism (ca. 60 endemic species). One group of particular interest is the putatively monophyletic Roucela complex, which includes approximately 12 species traditionally included in Campanula. This taxonomically complex group is primarily distributed within the eastern Mediterranean basin, with many of the taxa restricted to a single or a few islands. This work examines the phylogenetic relationship and biogeography of Roucela within the Campanuloideae based on chloroplast and low-copy nuclear markers.
