ephemeral pools that would also explain the high crustacean species endemism and richness there (Menu-Marque et al., 2000 ; De los Ríos-Escalante & Robles, 2013). The Branchinecta habitats in Chile are characterized by an absence of fish, and are nesting and feeding sites for aquatic birds such as

Introduction Organisms show non-random distributions patterns as a result of many historical events but, in final instances, these patterns reflect the dispersion limits of each species into certain niche parameter ranges (Wiens, 2011). Areas of Endemism represent biogeographical regions

consider that, given their particular geological histories, mountain systems are generally centers of endemism and in most cases harbor a greater diversity than neighboring regions (Jingyun, Zehao and Haiting, 2004; Körner, 2004; Brehm et al., 2008; Kozak and Wiens, 2010; Hoorn et al., 2013; Graham et al

Introduction The Ryukyu Islands are the southernmost region of Japan and are a tropical marine region of high biodiversity and species endemism ( Hughes et al., 2002 ; Cowman et al., 2017 ; Reimer et al., 2019 ). It was estimated that a large part (70%) of the marine biodiversity in
