Starting from simple facts and principles and assuming only a rudimentary knowledge of biology, geography, and Earth history, the updated and revised text explains the relationships between geographic variation in biodiversity and the geological, ecological, and evolutionary processes that have produced them. Written in an engaging style, Biogeography emphasizes the interplay between unifying concepts and presents evidence that supports or challenges these concepts.
