About this book

This is the first book in the Frontiers of Biogeography series, which includes integrative and interdisciplinary volumes developed and published in association with the International Biogeography Society. The period between 1975 and 2000 was one of fundamental change in historical biogeography, island biogeography, and marine biogeography, and saw the emergence of new fields including phylogeography, macroecology, and applications of biogeography for conserving biological diversity. This book concentrates explicitly on these advances and on the most promising and most insightful lines of future research on the geography of nature.
