of Biogeography is a new series of integrative and interdisciplinary volumes published
and developed in association with the International
Biogeography Society. Each book in the series will focus
on an emerging area of research, and will either present new syntheses,
or review and summarize the state of the art, the most significant advances
and most promising directions for future research on the geographic variation
of nature. Volumes will be either integrative collections on emerging
themes in biogeography, or insightful and synthetic contributions from
individual, distinguished biographers. The series is aimed at a
broad readership of graduate students, biogeographers and other researchers
who study the geography of nature, including ecologists, evolutionary
biologists, paleontologists and conservation biologists.
