Abstract (English)

The present-day range distribution of many species has been influenced by re-occuring glacials of the past. By the retreat into different refugia situated in more southerly regions, species were geographically separated and sometimes diverged into separate lineages. After having re-occupied their formerly ice-covered habitats, these species pairs nowadays often exhibit parapatric distribution and ...
