Differentiation of Europe's mammal fauna against a background of biogeographical units, the area of units and mammalian taxonomic richness

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This analysis considered the relationship between the occurrence of mammals and geographical location in Europe, as well as the size of biogeographical units. It was found that there was differentiation in the qualitative composition of the mammal fauna in the north-south direction, which resulted from the overall zonal distribution of cool, temperate and hot areas. The correlation between the number of species and the area of a unit was not statistically significant in every case considered. Besides area, the regional variability of environmental conditions also has a decisive influence on the distribution of mammals in Europe
