About this book

This book summarizes the author's research on speciation in several groups of neotropical birds and which he has placed in the framework of earlier investigations and of studies on the changing environmental conditions during the recent geological past. In this way he arrives at an historical model of speciation in neotropical birds, which is probably applicable to the entire terrestrial fauna of tropical South and Middle America.
