The aim of the presented map was to analyse patterns in species richness and endemism for the European riverine fish fauna in the light of the two major events that profoundly affected fish extinction, dispersal and speciation since the end of the Miocene: the Messinian salinity crisis of the Mediterranean Sea (5 Ma) and the Last Glacial Maximum (18,000 years ago).
