Biogeographers choose to align their scholarship within different domains, from ecological or historical biogeography, to landscape ecology, macroecology, or the analytical perspective initiated with the theory of island biogeography. Biogeography is also practiced under the umbrella of geography, as geographical biogeography. Using the ISI Web of Science journal article database, I performed content visualizations of research authored by those biogeographers with an identity or interest… 
Biogeography and Environmental Restoration: An Opportunity in Applied Research
Environmental restoration is the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or destroyed. This is a broadly defined endeavor, where directed manipulation of
Vegetation response to wildfire and climate forcing in a Rocky Mountain lodgepole pine forest over the past 2500 years
Wildfire is a ubiquitous disturbance agent in subalpine forests in western North America. Lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia), a dominant tree species in these forests, is largely


Biogeography in the Annals
Abstract Biogeography has been consistently well represented in the Annals throughout the Association of American Geographers' first century. This sample of biogeographic research effectively
ABSTRACT Geography is distinguished from other earth sciences as the discernment and delineation of landscape patterns, interpreting the structures and processes that give rise to them, and
Historical biogeography, ecology and species richness.
Genetic Applications in Biogeography
This issue of Physical Geography is intended to highlight some of the work being done by biogeographers that integrate traditional methods and genetic analysis, with several research papers that combine both ecological biogeography and geneticAnalysis.
Historical Biogeography: An Introduction
This chapter discusses methods in Historical Biogeography, a Conceptual Framework for the Future that aims to define distribution areas and areas of Endemism and describe the phylogeny of species.
Island Biogeography — Ecology, Evolution and Conservation
This book is well laid-out and comprehensive in its coverage of issues in insular biogeography, and the way that the author discussed and compared evolutionary versus ecological phenomena is particularly liked.
Ecologists and taxonomists: Divergent traditions in twentieth-century plant geography

  • 1986
This study suggests a more complex relationship between taxonomic and ecological plant geographies, with the result that two relatively independent approaches to the study of plant distribution have persisted.
Untangling Ecological Complexity: The Macroscopic Perspective
This text argues for a more pluralistic approach to biodiversity research, showing how ecologists might enhance their ability to tackle global problems by incorporating broader spatial and temporal perspectives into their research.
Mathematical Ecology and Its Place among the Sciences. (Book Reviews: Geographical Ecology. Patterns in the Distribution of Species)
This book is the summation of the life work of one of the most influential scientists of the authors' time and will continue to be read by anyone concerned with biological ideas.
