Climate refugia: from the Last Glacial Maximum to the 21st century
A report of the wonderful workshop held in Eugene, OR last summer about climate refugia has now appeared in New Phytologist. There we summarise the interesting discussions we had between a varied group of palaeoecologists, climatologists, modellers, phylogeographers and geneticists. Different researchers have clearly distinct notions and interests in studying refugia, but there is great potential to obtain better insights from multidisciplinary approaches. Most of our discussions focussed on how to best integrate evidences from these different disciplines.
