Summary

''Fundamentals of Biogeography presents an accessible, engaging, and comprehensive introduction to biogeography, explaining the ecology, geography, history, and conservation of animals and plants. Starting with an outline of how species arise, disperse, diversify, and become extinct, the book examines how environmental factors (climate, substrate, topography, and disturbance) influence animals and plants; investigates how populations grow, interact, and survive, and how communities form and change; and explores the connections between biogeography and conservation.'' ''Fundamentals of Biogeography presents an appealing introduction for students and all those interested in gaining a deeper understanding of key topics and debates within the fields of biogeography, ecology, and the environment. Revealing how life has been and is adapting to its biological and physical surroundings, Huggett stresses the role of ecological, historical, and human factors in fashioning animal and plant distributions, and explores how biogeography can inform conservation practice.''--BOOK JACKET.
