About this book

This classic study was the first major history of ideas about biogeography, and describes the process by which diverse theories and techniques were crystallized around a common core to create a new field of inquiry. By shedding new light on pre-Darwinian thought and emphasizing the significance of biogeography in the development of evolutionary theory, this book made an important contribution to the history of science.
