A biogeographic regionalisation of the Neotropical region is proposed as a hierarchical classification of sub-regions, dominions, provinces and districts. [] Key Result For some of the latter, sub-provinces and districts are recognized. Complete synonymies and brief descriptions of the areas are provided, as well as the endemic taxa that diagnose the different provinces.

A biogeographic regionalisation of the Andean region is proposed as a hierarchical classification of sub-regions, provinces, sub-provinces and districts. It is based on biogeographic analyses of
Biogeographic regionalization of the Neotropical region: New map and shapefile.
We provide a map and shapefile of the 57 biogeographic provinces of the Neotropical region. Recognition of these provinces is based on their endemic species, but their delimitation on the map is
Biogeographic Regionalization of South American Anurans
The interest in recognizing spatial patterns of species co-distributions has long led biogeographers and macroecologists to classify the world in biogeographic regions. In this chapter, we aimed to
The Patagonian Steppe biogeographic province: Andean region or South American transition zone?
It is found that the Patagonian Steppe presents a similar proportion of genera of Andean as well as neotropical origin, which will make it the largest TZ of America, encompassing most of the arid lands of South America.

A biogeographical regionalisation attempting some consensus is proposed, recognising the following three kingdoms and nine regions: Holarctic kingdom (Nearctic and Palearctic regions), Holotropical kingdom (Neotropical, Ethiopian and Oriental regions), and Austral kingdom (Cape, Andean, Australian and Antarctic regions).
The Neotropical region sensu the areas of endemism of terrestrial mammals
The Ae showed a NR with multiple boundaries and with a core of higher overlap of the areas of endemism (OAE) from Veracruz and the Pacific coasts of Mexico to the southern limit of Amazonia in Brazil, which is consistent with the higher mammal-species richness zone within the tropical biomes and other biogeographic patterns such as higher productivity and spatial heterogeneity.
Biogeographical regionalisation of Colombia: a revised area taxonomy
The revised area taxonomy provides an updated and objective biogeographical classification for Colombia and is the first biogeographic regionalisation exclusively based on the taxic distributional overlap of Colombia´s land plants.

ABSTRACT There are ca. 40 biogeographic regionalisations of the Baja California province, that differ in the criteria used and the names and categories given to the different units recognised. Maps
Biogeographic units in the Chihuahuan Desert: Implications for regionalization and area nomenclature
There are several biogeographic regionalizations of the Chihuahuan Desert province, which differ in the criteria used, and the names and categories given to the different units recognized. We
A new biogeographical regionalisation of the Páramo biogeographic province
This study supports the hypothesis that during different glacial periods, páramos of these cordilleras were connected and, subsequently, separated during interglacial periods.

Cladistic analysis of the distribution of 335 anuran species showed two regions that form a basal dichotomy: Central America + Choco and Amazon Basin + Brazilian Atlantic Forest, which is interpreted as the first vicariance event that separated lowland Neotropical rainforests into Cis- and Trans-Andean areas.

Species diversity and composition of the six floristic regions of the world indicate that the three extra-tropical foliicolous lichen biotas (Valdivian, Tethyan, Neozealandic-Tasmanian) are the result of partly separate evolutionary histories.
