Author: Michael J Heads
Publisher: Berkeley : University of California Press, ©2012.
Series: Species and systematics.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
'Molecular Panbiogeography of the Tropics' is an alternative view of distributional history in which groups are older than suggested by fossils and fossil-calibrated molecular clocks. It discusses possible causes for the endemism of high-level taxa in tropical America and Madagascar.
