Containing 18 contributions from international scholars, this text covers five main subdisciplines of biogeography: plate tectonics and paleobiogeography- phylogeography and diversification- diversity gradients- marine biogeography- and conservation biogeography. The material in this volume is based upon plenary papers presented at the 2003 inaugural meeting of the International Biogeography Society. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
