The Sage Handbook of Biogeography is a manual for scoping the past, present and future of biogeography that enable readers to consider, where relevant, how similar biogeographical issues are tackled by researchers in different 'schools'.
This is a retrospective and prospective overview of biogeography that will: consider the main areas of biogeography researched by geographers; detail a global perspective by incorporating the work of different schools of biogeographers; explore the divergent evolution of biogeography as a discipline and consider how this diversity can be harnessed; and, examine the interdisciplinary debates that biogeographers are, and are not, contributing to within geography and within the biological sciences.
This is a valuable addition to the field of Biogeography. The authors investigate Biogeography using a strictly geographical perspective that provides an insightful viewpoint into where Biogeography is focused and uniquely suited in the larger discipline of Geography Professor Barbara A.
