About this book

This is the first volume to fully investigate this rapidly emerging subdiscipline. In addition to providing a critique and an historical perspective, Biogeography in a Changing World examines the diverse ideas and methodologies -- especially from biology and geology -- that are starting to shape its core of knowledge and provide principles to guide research. The text includes contributions from many high-profile scientists who offer insight on the role of biological process such as dispersal and extinction, as well as geological reconstructions in biogeographical explanation. They also explore biogeography's current relationship with other disciplines and discuss potential developments.
