This newly discovered major lineage has demanded i) that the new family is thoroughly characterized and understood in the broader context of amphibian evolution, ii) that the generality of the historical biogeography of Chikilidae is tested using independent but broadly similar lineages, and iii) that the environmental and biological history of NEI is reassessed, especially the implications for recognising biogeographic units and demarcating hotspots.

To accomplish this objective, we have determined divergence estimates for all major clades of Apiales, and examined patterns of historical biogeography in the order using an expanded version of the plastid data first presented in Nicolas and Plunkett (2009), which included the widest taxonomic sampling from the order to date, representing all major lineages and most genera of Apiales.
