About this book

Neotropical Biogeography: Regionalization and Evolution presents the most comprehensive single-source treatment of the Neotropical region derived from evolutionary biogeographic studies. The book provides a biogeographic regionalization based on distributional patterns of plant and animal taxa, discusses biotic relationships drawn from track and cladistic biogeographic analyses, and identifies cenocrons (subsets of taxa within biotas identified by their common origin and evolutionary history). It includes maps, area cladograms and vegetation profiles.

The aim of Neotropical Biogeography: Regionalization and Evolution is to provide a biogeographic regionalization that can be used by graduate students, researchers and other professionals concerned with understanding and describing distributional patterns of plants and animals in the Neotropical region. It covers the 53 biogeographic provinces of the Neotropical region that are classified into the Antillean, Brazilian and Chacoan subregions, and the Mexican and South American transition zones.

Media reviews

"This is classic biogeography, and while not one to read from cover to cover, it belongs on the bookshelf of anyone working in this region."
– Markus Eichhorn, Frontiers of Biogeography, June 2017

"This richly illustrated and well-organized book provides a thorough overview of biogeographic research in the Neotropics – the tropical belt that stretches from Argentina to Mexico, including the Caribbean [...] the author provides an excellent and comprehensive review of the progress in Neotropical regionalization, from the early days to recent developments. The cornerstone of this book is that each Neotropical region is summarized in detail, consistently enumerating aspects such the endemic and characteristic taxa, and describing their overall vegetation. For someone interested in a specific portion of the Neotropics, it is a compelling departure point for further reading. It is my hope that this book will not only become a standard reference in Neotropical biogeography, but will also entice a new generation of biogeographers to look more rigorously for patterns, and then take substantial steps in trying to understand them."
– Alexandre Antonelli, Gothenburg Global Biodiversity Centre, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden, in The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol 93, 2018
