Molecular biogeography

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



What is surprising, especially as we observe the development of biogeography over the last decade or so, is that macro-problems are increasingly being answered by micro-methods. Just as biology and ecology are increasingly moving into and drawing upon the sub-cellular disciplines, so we see the emergence of a new discipline of molecular biogeography. Several applications are presented : historical biogeography of birds; human aspects of molecular biogeography; past population catastrophes; conservation; diversity and stability. Already molecular techniques are having an impact on traditional biogeographic hypotheses and assumptions
