Bipolar species represent the greatest biogeographical disjunction on Earth, raising many questions about the colonization and adaptive processes behind such striking distribution. We investigated climatic niche differences of 5 Carex bipolar species in North and South America to assess niche shifts between these 2 regions. Moreover, we assessed potential distribution changes with future climate change.
