Summary and Info
Biogeography is a new discipline being formed by people approaching the problems of plant and animal distribution by combining the skills from diverse fields. The problem with biogeography is that it is so new that there isn't even a standard definition of what it is.
In August of 2005 a symposium was held with the title 'What is Biogeography.' The symposium provided a forum for a range of viewpoints and the way it is practiced. This book brings together the papers from the meeting, plus additional material, to provide a broad-based perspective on the nature of biogeography. The wide range of authors come from all across Europe and America.
A major part of the book, but a bit understated, is the exploration of the discipline's current relationship with other disciplines and discusses portntial development. This is intended to pave the way for its evolution into a stand-alone field.
