Elevation gradients of species‐density: historical and prospective views
Studies of elevation clines in diversity and composition of ecological communities date back to the origins of biogeography. A modern resurgence of interests in these elevational clines is likely toExpand

Investigating causality of nestedness of insular communities: selective immigrations or extinctions?
. Most archipelagos are comprised of a nested set of communities, with species on depauperate islands representing proper subsets of those on richer islands. The causality for this commonExpand

Dynamic biogeography and conservation of endangered species
As one moves from the core to the periphery of a species' geographical range, populations occupy less favourable habitats and exhibit lower and more variable densities. Populations along theExpand

A call for a new paradigm of island biogeography
MacArthur and Wilson's equilibrium theory of island biogeography quickly became the paradigm of the field in the 1960s and has strongly influenced this and other disciplines of ecology andExpand

A species‐based theory of insular zoogeography
1 I present an alternative to the equilibrium theory of island biogeography, one which is based on the premise that many of the more general patterns in insular community structure result from, notExpand

The species-area relationship: new challenges for an old pattern
The species-area relationship (i.e., the relationship between area and the number of species found in that area) is one of longest and most frequently studied patterns in nature. Yet there remainExpand

Of mice and mammoths: evaluations of causal explanations for body size evolution in insular mammals
Aim We investigated the hypothesis that the insular body size of mammals results from selective forces whose influence varies with characteristics of the focal islands and the focal species, and withExpand

Island Biogeograhy of Montane Forest Mammals in the American Southwest
Information from packrat (Neotoma spp.) middens and other paleoenviron- mental indicators was used to reconstruct Pleistocene distributions of macrohabitats in the American Southwest (Arizona, NewExpand
