About this book

Written by leading biogeographers, based upon the dynamic studies over the last 30 years, this revision of Australasian biogeography covers terrestrial, freshwater, and marine organisms. A handbook, rather than a natural history, Handbook of Australasian Biogeography is a unique resource that is invaluable to anyone interested in Australasian biogeography.

Handbook of Australasian Biogeography goes beyond a focus on a single taxa or area or analyses of certain types of data to provide a comprehensive review of our current knowledge of the systematics and distribution of major plant and animal groups in Australasia.
