Biogeography is the study of the processes that determine the spatial and temporal distributions of organisms and their attributes across the earth (Lomolino et al., ). Biogeography focuses on understanding the geological, environmental, and historic factors that determine where biodiversity is and how it is different among regions.

In this chapter, we discuss the aspects of the biogeography and conservation of fully mycoheterotrophic plants, with a strong emphasis on angiosperms.

Conservation biology is fast emerging as a major new discipline, which incorporates biological principles in the design of effective strategies for the sustainable management of populations, species and entire ecosystems. This beautifully illustrated textbook introduces students to conservation biology, the science of preserving biodiversity.

"Island Biogeography will satisfy those looking for a comprehansive text on island ecology." - Nature, Vol.April "This is an exceptionally exciting time in the development of island biogeography, and the authors of this book have done us a great service in clarifying where we have been and helping to point the way forwards.".

Conservation Biogeography. In recent years, scientists and nature enthusiasts alike have further expanded the field of biogeography to include conservation biogeography—the protection or restoration of nature and its flora and fauna, whose devastation is often caused by human interference in the natural cycle.

Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible s: 1. Island biogeography is the study of the distribution and dynamics of species in island environments. Due to their isolation from more widespread continental species, islands are ideal places for unique species to evolve, but they are also places of concentrated extinction.

Not surprisingly, they are widely studied by ecologists, conservationists and evolutionary biologists alike. Through nine successful editions, and for over 45 years, Biogeography: An Ecological and Evolutionary Approach has provided a thorough and comprehensive exploration of the varied scientific disciplines and research that are essential to understanding the subject.

The text, noted for its clear and engaging style of writing, has been praised for its solid background in historical biogeography. Conservation Biology Books Showing of 67 The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History (Hardcover) by.

Marine biogeography is a subfield of the biogeography aimed at understanding the patterns and processes governing the distribution of marine taxa at geographic scales.

Marine biogeography is related to several disciplines and subdisciplines, including marine biology and ecology, physical and biological oceanography, ecophysiology, genetics.

This lavishly illustrated book examines the distribution, ecology, conservation status, and biogeography of species of dragonflies in the southern plains of the United States, where twelve ecoregions converge.

The topics discussed, such as phenotypic variation and ecology, are applicable and of interest across the United States and much of north America, and will appeal to. and the nearest to a book of the title that we are aware of is Applied Biogeography (Spellerberg & Sawyer, ).
