The aim of this paper is to analyze the evolution of historical biogeography during the first decade of the 21st century and to identify major trends for the near future. The AA. constructed a database containing all articles which dealt with historical biogeography published in the Journal of Biogeography during 1998–2010. Their results indicated that historical biogeography is going through a growth period. Most of the AA. worked in Europe or North America. The Palearctic was the most analyzed region. Most contributions dealt with terrestrial habitats and were devoted to animal (especially Chordata) and plant taxa. Phylogeography was the most used approach (35%), followed by biota similarity and PAE (13%) and molecular biogeography (12%), with cladistic biogeography and event-based methods at 6% each. Moreover, some of the future challenges that historical biogeography faces are summarized
