Frontiers of Biogeography

Back to Life sciences

Editors: Dr Lawrence R. Heaney, Dr Mark V. Lomolino

In the last 25 years, biogeography has become the cornerstone of modern ecology and conservation biology, exploring a great diversity of patterns in the geographic variation of nature from physiological, morphological and genetic variation among individuals and populations to differences in the diversity and composition of biotas along geographic gradients. In 2000, the International Biogeography Society was inaugurated to foster communication and collaboration between biogeographers in disparate academic fields, and to promote the training and education of biogeographers so that they can develop sound strategies for studying and conserving the world's biotas. Frontiers of Biogeography is a new series of integrative and interdisciplinary volumes published by Cambridge University Press in association with the International Biogeography Society to further these aims. Books in the series will focus on an emerging area of research, and will review or summarise the state of the art, the most significant advances and most promising directions for future research. Volumes will be either collections of invited contributions from selected authors, or authored works from distinguished biographers. The series is aimed at a broad readership of graduate students, academic and other researchers who study the geography of nature, including ecologists, evolutionary biologists, conservation biologists, paleontologists and biogeographers.
