Biogeography combines evolutionary and ecological perspectives to show how Earth history, contemporary environments, and evolutionary and ecological processes have shaped species distributions and nearly all patterns of biodiversity. Written as a primary text for undergraduate and graduate courses, the book is also an invaluable reference for biogeographers, ecologists, evolutionary biologists, and conservation biologists. The Fourth Edition features color illustrations evaluated and optimized for colorblind readers.
