Dating nodes on molecular phylogenies: a critique of molecular biogeography
Taxa have been dated using three methods: equating their age with the age of the oldest known fossil, with the age of strata the taxa are endemic to, and with the age of paleogeographic events. AllExpand

Towards a panbiogeography of the seas
A contrast is drawn between the concept of speciation favoured in the Darwin–Wallace biogeographic paradigm (founder dispersal from a centre of origin) and in panbiogeography (vicariance orExpand
