Foundations and future of biogeography

Principal Investigators:

Mark V. Lomolino, James H. Brown, and Dov F. Sax

Project Objectives:

The working group will address three objectives. First, to compile a set of seminal research papers, provide original commentary on their relevance, and organise them into a book, "The Foundations of Biogeography." This book is to be published by the University of Chicago Press. Second, to organise an international society of biogeography, along with supporting activities, such as the initiation of society meetings and the development of a web page. Third, to develop and establish future working groups and workshops... more
