Hacia una sintesis biogeografica de Mexico
EL RECONOCIMIENTO DE COMPONENTES BIOTICOS CONSTITUYE UNA PRIMERA ETAPA HACIA UNA TEORIA BIOGEOGRAFICA SINTETICA. EN MEXICO PODEMOS CARACTERIZAR 3 COMPONENTES BIOTICOS PRINCIPALES, CADA UNO CON UNAExpand

Cladistic biogeography of the Neotropical region: identifying the main events in the diversification of the terrestrial biota
A cladistic biogeographical analysis was undertaken to identify the main events in the biotic diversification of the terrestrial Neotropical biota. For the 36 animal and plant taxa analysed, aExpand

HISTORICAL BIOGEOGRAPHY: Introduction to Methods
The five basic historical biogeographic methods are: dispersalism, phyloge­ netic biogeography, panbiogeography, cladistic biogeography, and parsimony analysis of endemicity. Dispersalism derivesExpand

Panbiogeografía, componentes bióticos y zonas de transición
Recognition of biotic components is a key element for understanding evolution in space-time. Panbiogeography represents a biogeographic approach that may be applied to identify these bioticExpand

Fundamental biogeographic patterns across the Mexican Transition Zone: an evolutionary approach
Transition zones, located at the boundaries between biogeographic regions, represent events of biotic hybridization, promoted by historical and ecological changes. They deserve special attention,Expand

Parsimony analysis of endemicity (PAE) of Mexican terrestrial mammals at different area units: when size matters
Aim Parsimony analysis of endemicity (PAE) is a biogeographical method that uses a parsimony algorithm to obtain an area cladogram, based on taxa inhabiting the study areas. We compare itsExpand

Biogeographical regionalisation of the world: a reappraisal
Abstract. Some phytogeographical, zoogeographical and biogeographical regionalisations of the world are reviewed qualitatively. A biogeographical regionalisation attempting some consensus isExpand

Distributional patterns of freshwater taxa (fishes, crustaceans and plants) from the Mexican Transition Zone
Aim  To test whether distributional patterns of Neotropical freshwater taxa fit the generalized tracks already postulated for terrestrial groups occurring in the Mexican Transition Zone. Expand

Does the Trans-mexican Volcanic Belt represent a natural biogeographical unit? An analysis of the distributional patterns of Coleoptera
ABSTRACTAim We analysed the geographical distribution of beetle species of the familiesBuprestidae, Cerambycidae, Dryophthoridae, Melolonthidae, Passalidae andStaphylinidae from the Trans-mexicanExpand
