Publisher Comments:

Fundamentals of Biogeography presents an accessible, engaging and comprehensive introduction to biogeography, explaining the ecology, geography, history and conservation of animals and plants. Starting with an outline of how species arise, disperse, diversify and become extinct, the book examines: how environmental factors (climate, substrate, topography, and disturbance) influence animals and plants; investigates how populations grow, interact and survive; how communities form and change; and explores the connections between biogeography and conservation.

The second edition has been extensively revised and expanded throughout to cover new topics and revisit themes from the first edition in more depth. Illustrated throughout with informative diagrams and attractive photos and including guides to further reading, chapter summaries and an extensive glossary of key terms, Fundamentals of Biogeography clearly explains key concepts in the history, geography and ecology of life systems. In doing so, it tackles some of the most topical and controversial environmental and ethical concerns including species over-exploitation, the impacts of global warming, habitat fragmentation, biodiversity loss and ecosystem restoration.

Book News Annotation:

Huggett (geography, U. of Manchester, UK) updates his 1998 textbook on biogeography, retaining the stress on the role of ecological, geographical, historical, and human factors in fashioning animal and plant distributions, but significantly rearranging the material. The text is now organized into four parts, covering biogeography basics such as the nature of the field, basic processes, distributions; ecological issues such as habitats and niches, environmental factors, interacting populations, and communities; the history of organisms, including dispersal and diversification, vicariance, and past community change; and conservation applications.
