Dynamic Biogeography (Cambridge Studies in Ecology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cambridge Studies in Ecology presents balanced, comprehensive, up-to-date, and critical reviews of selected topics within ecology, both botanical and zoological. The Series is aimed at advanced final-year undergraduates, graduate students, researchers, and university teachers, as well as ecologists in industry and government research. It encompasses a wide range of approaches and spatial, temporal, and taxonomic scales in ecology, including quantitative, theoretical, population, community, ecosystem, historical, experimental, behavioural and evolutionary studies. The emphasis throughout is on ecology related to the real world of plants and animals in the field rather than on purely theoretical abstractions and mathematical models. Some books in the Series attempt to challenge existing ecological paradigms and present new concepts, empirical or theoretical models, and testable hypotheses. Others attempt to explore new approaches and presents syntheses on topics of considerable importance ecologically which cut across the conventional but artificial boundaries within the science of ecology.

Synopsis:

Biogeography is an increasingly important area for ecology, dynamic biogeography being the study of biological patterns and processes on a broad scale both geographically and temporally. This work provides an overview of all the scales of variation and a glimpse into the future of biogeography.

Synopsis:

Dynamic Biogeography involves the study of biological patterns and processes on a broad scale both geographically and temporally. This book deals with patterns of concordance, geography trends in species' diversity and biological traits and areography or the analysis of species range.

Synopsis:

Biogeography is the study of biological patterns and processes on a broad scale--geographically and temporally. The spatial patterns and processes studied are presented from an ecological perspective in this text.

Synopsis:

Biogeography is an increasingly important area for ecology, dynamic biogeography being the study of biological patterns and processes on a broad scale both geographically and temporally. In this book, the spatial patterns and processes studied in dynamic biogeography are presented from an ecological perspective. Dynamic Biogeography opens with a survey of the different approaches encountered within the subject. The remainder of the book is arranged into four parts. The first is concerned with patterns of concordance; both quantitative and qualitative classifications are discussed. Geographical trends in species' diversity and biological traits are viewed, with Part 3 leading into areography or the analysis of species ranges. The book is drawn together by an overview of all the scales of variation and a glimpse into the future of biogeography.
