Journal of Biogeography blog

The future of biogeography, now

The Journal of Biogeography publishes research at the intersection of biology and geography that is scientifically important and of broad general interest. We seek papers describing patterns and revealing mechanisms that shape biodiversity, through time, throughout the planet, from the deep past into the future, and from local to global scales.

ECR feature: Jeronymo Dalapicolla on different forest-association impacts on functional connectivity in the Amazon.

Jeronymo Dalapicolla is a postdoc at the Instituto Tecnológico Vale in Brazil. He is an evolutionary biologist interested in the impact of landscape features on evolutionary processes. Here, Jeronymo shares his recent work on the influence of different forest associations in the genetic variation of two sympatric species of spiny rats in the Western Amazon.Continue reading “ECR feature: Jeronymo Dalapicolla on different forest-association impacts on functional connectivity in the Amazon.”

Towering trees and flying dragons

Canopy physiognomy governs the distribution of peninsular Indian flying lizards in regions of climatic suitability. Above: Silhouette of an Indian Flying Lizard in its arboreal habitat. I have always been intrigued by organismal distributions. Why do certain species occur in certain regions? Why do they stop, sometimes abruptly, at certain latitudes where there aren’t anyContinue reading “Towering trees and flying dragons”
