... We propose here that understanding the history of lineages and ecosystems is a prerequisite to developing effective conservation programmes. Short-term perturbations (i.e., those documented within the last two centuries) may alert us to short-term problems but comprehension of long-term trends...

... and relatively buffered from short- and long-term climatic changes. Therefore, rock habitats can act as refugia (litho-refugia) for the persistence of rainforest lineages in areas where rainforest is currently, or was historically, marginal or absent. Here we outline a number of examples of rainforest faunal...

... The Australian freshwater turtle fauna appears to comprise a series of relictual lineages, each of considerable antiquity, possibly stemming from times when climates were moister. Half the extant genera are monotypic and two species, Carettochelys insculpta and Pseudemydura umbrina...
