First evidence of differentiation in a potential introduced tree species

Nicolás Velasco Saragoni



Acacia caven occurs at both sides of the Andes, but the western population is considered a subsample of the variability at the eastern region. Although leaves morphology shows differences between regions, climatic niche analyses showed that the species has mostly conserved niche occupancy, indicating that phenotypic plasticity can only be a weak driver behind differentiation. These are the first indications of differentiation between A. caven populations at both regions, a species thought to be human-introduced in the Pleistocene-Holocene. Correspondingly, SDMs predict only a small part of the eastern region as potential provenance of the introduction.
