The Biogeography of Geographers: A Content Visualization of Journal Publications

  title={The Biogeography of Geographers: A Content Visualization of Journal Publications},
  author={J. A. Stallins},
  journal={Physical Geography},
  pages={261 - 275}
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… Expand
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 ofExpand
Vegetation response to wildfire and climate forcing in a Rocky Mountain lodgepole pine forest over the past 2,500 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 largelyExpand


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 effectivelyExpand
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, andExpand
Historical biogeography, ecology and species richness.
The chasm that has developed between ecology and historical biogeography is described, some of the important questions that have fallen into it and how it might be bridged, and a model that can help explain the latitudinal gradient of species richness is expanded. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Human Geography and the “New Ecology”: The Prospect and Promise of Integration
Abstract The “new ecology” underscores the role of nonequilibrium conditions in biophysical environments, a reorientation of biological ecology based in part on biogeography. This paper describes theExpand
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. Expand
Mapping, modeling and visualization of the influences of geomorphic processes on the alpine treeline ecotone, Glacier National Park, MT, USA
Spatially explicit digital technologies are integrated within a geographic information science (GISc) context to map, model, and visualize selected direct and indirect geomorphic processes thatExpand
Ecologists and taxonomists: Divergent traditions in twentieth-century plant geography
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. Expand
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. Expand
