Hypotheses of biogeographic homology constitute the basis of historical biogeography. Primary biogeographic homology refers to a conjecture on a common biogeographic history, and secondary biogeographic homology refers to the cladistic test of the formerly recognized homology. Panbiogeography deals with the former, through the recognition of generalized tracks and areas of endemism, whereas cladistic biogeography deals with the latter, through the generation of general area cladograms.

Here, the literature on biogeographic units, their uses and recommendations are reviewed, highlighting the relevance of the use of more than one area-classification scheme in empirical studies.
Biodiversity of Mexican terrestrial arthropods (Arachnida and Hexapoda): a biogeographical puzzle
We present a general review of the knowledge on Mexican terrestrial arthropods and a set of hypotheses to help explain their biogeographic complexity, translated into biogeographic regions,
What Is Evolutionary Biogeography?
The geological and biological knowledge available is integrated to construct a geobiotic scenario that helps explain the way different dispersal and vicariance events contributed to biotic assembly and how the cenocrons dispersed to the biota analyzed.
Scientific Advances in Polychaete Research
The PAE cladogram indicates that many of the extant terebellid worms from the current Southern Hemisphere (“Gondwanan clades”) have originated from Laurasian ancestors or, in the case of Brazilian, South Atlantic and Antarctic taxa, have descended directly from an ancestral lineage common to some Northern areas.
Distribution patterns of Terebellidae (Annelida: Polychaeta): an application of Parsimony Analysis of Endemicity (PAE)
The PAE cladogram indicates that many of the extant terebellid worms from the current Southern Hemisphere (“Gondwanan clades”) have originated from Laurasian ancestors or have descended directly from an ancestral lineage common to some Northern areas.
Distributional patterns of the neotropical fly genus Polietina Schnabl & Dziedzicki (Diptera, Muscidae): a phylogeny-supported analysis using panbiogeographic tools
The distributional patterns of the genus Polietina Schnabl & Dziedzicki, 1911 (Diptera, Muscidae; including 15 species) are analysed by applying panbiogeographic tools to recognise and propose primary homologous areas within the Neotropical region.
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.
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.
Panbiogeographical analysis of the genus Bomarea (Alstroemeriaceae)
Aim  A panbiogeographical analysis of the genus Bomarea was undertaken in order to determine generalized tracks and biogeographical nodes, and to evaluate the current distribution of the genus based

Cladistic Biogeography: Interpreting Patterns of Plant and Animal Distributions
This book discusses cladistics and biogeography of the southern end of the world, Tropical versus antitropical Pangaea, Pacifica, or expanding Earth, and methodological developments.
Panbiogeography: A Progressive Research Program?
-The methodology of scientific research programs developed by I. Lakatos is discussed and applied to the current debate concerning method and theory in historical biogeography. Of the three
Paralogy and the Centre of Origin Concept
Ancestral area methodology, applied to finding the centre of origin, conflicts with most cladistic biogeographic methods since it uses, not reduces, paralogy. A new term, area cladistics, is herein
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.
Systematics and Biogeography: Cladistics and Vicariance
It's coming again, the new collection that this site has; the favorite systematics and biogeography cladistics and vicariance book as the choice today.
Analytical Biogeography: An Integrated Approach to the Study of Animal and Plant Distributions
Biogeography may be defined simply as the study of the geographical distribution of organisms, but this simple defmition hides the great complexity of the subject. Biogeography transcends classical
A critique of the theory and methods of panbiogeography
-Panbiogeography, from Croizat to its latest developments in New Zealand, is treated at length. Craw and Weston's attempt to squeeze their approach into Lakatos' philosophy of science is shown to be
Spanning-tree Biogeography:shortcut, Detour, or Dead-end?
The spanning-tree approach to biogeography developed by Craw and Page offers results even when little or no cladistic information about taxonomic relationships is available, however, those results may frequently be artifacts of the method.
Gondwana, vicariance biogeography and the New York School revisited
The many methods of biogeographic analysis proposed in recent years generate artefactual results that impede understanding, discovery and progress, and cladistic studies of extant Nothofagus agree in showing only three informative nodes relevant to intercontinental relationships.
Three-Area Statements: Standard Assumptions for Biogeographic Analysis
Analysis of simple examples suggests that three-area statements permit a better measure of fit between an area cladogram and data on area relationship than do existing implementations of assumption zero, such as Brooks parsimony analysis, or existing implementation of assumption one.
