  • Aim  We evaluated the applicability of Rapoport's rule (RR) to the marine molluscs of the Americas. The biogeographical pattern predicted by RR has been the subject of a large number of studies, some supporting it and some not. In this exercise, we attempted to generate results free of biases in taxonomy or geographical scale. Location  The study area encompassed the Pacific and Atlantic sides of the entire North and South American continents. Methods  Our analysis was based on… CONTINUE READING
