Historical biogeography, ecology and species richness.

Toward an Integrative Historical Biogeography1

The development of historical biogeography over the last few decades provides general insights into the nature of integration through the life of a discipline, and ways in which topological and temporal information might be better integrated.

HISTORICAL BIOGEOGRAPHY: Introduction to Methods

The various methods of biogeography think some of them can be integrated in a single biogeographic approach, with the capability of resolving different problems, such as the recognition of spatial problems.

Beyond area relationships: Extinction and recolonization in molecular marine biogeography

This work sharpen the focus of vicariance biogeography, and attempts to identify organismal characteristics that unite sets of taxa with congruent histories in two well-studied model systems: the southeastern United States and the trans-Arctic interchange through the Bering Strait.

Homology, biogeography and areas of endemism

Panbiogeography deals with the recognition of generalized tracks and areas of endemism, whereas cladistic biogeography deal with the latter, through the generation of general area cladograms.

biogeografiasearch for congruent patterns in biogeography

This procedure aims to evaluate the robustness of biogeographical patterns as descriptions of how life changes in space and time, putting biogeography closer to Croizat's statement of evolution as a three dimensional phenomenon.

Forum on historical biogeography: what is cladistic biogeography?

The distinction between cladistic and phylogenetic biogeography is found to be interesting as it does delimit a theoretical rather than a methodological division in historicalBiogeography.

Malagasy Primate Origins: Phylogenies, Fossils, and Biogeographic Reconstructions

This study has evaluated the biogeographic implications of competing primate phylogenies in order to reconstruct the area of origin of Malagasy strepsirhines, demonstrating extreme vulnerability to both out-group choice and internal tree topology.

Biogeography of Nothofagus supports the sequence of Gondwana break-up

A historical biogeographic analysis of Nothofagus is reported where the reconciled trees between a well-supported Noth ofagus phylogeny and two geological hypotheses are compared: the current view of Gondwana break-up, and the areagram by Linder & Crisp.


The phylogenetic relationships among 58 hylid taxa are reconstructed using data from two mitochondrial genes (12S, ND1) and two nuclear genes (POMC, c-myc), and the replicate pattern in Holarctic hylids seems to reflect specialized tolerance for temperate climate regimes or possibly the effects of competition.
