      Thanks Kelly, yes, slowly but surely, I am getting some of these things out… this one was started while visiting at the Smithsonian many years ago… various other studies got in the way, but this is a good snapshot on what we think is happening and how the Bering Land Bridge as acted variously as a filter and in some cases a major highway for promoting the exchange of biota between Asia and Alaska. Cheers, Steffi.

    The land bridge was critical for migration of Artemisia species. Good to see your work continuing.

      Thanks Leila,
      we featured a number of groups that have a predominantly eastern Asian Western North American disjunction. Not to be considered exhaustive. Yes, Artemisia is a good one, we have a number of species in Alaska and of course in Eastern Asia…

      Best, Steffi.
