Comparative biogeography : discovering and classifying biogeographical patterns of a dynamic Earth

Author: Lynne R Parenti; Malte C Ebach
Publisher: Berkeley : University of California Press, ©2009.
Series: Species and systematics, v. 2.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : State or province government publication : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
To unravel the complex shared history of the Earth and its life forms, biogeographers analyze patterns of biodiversity, species distribution, and geological history. So far, the field of biogeography has been fragmented into divergent systematic and evolutionary approaches, with no overarching or unifying research theme or method. In this text, Lynne Parenti and Malte Ebach address this discord and outline  Read more...
