The general dynamic model: towards a unified theory of island biogeography?

Abstract:

Aim Island biogeography focuses on understanding the processes that underlie a set of well-described patterns on islands, but lacks a unified theoretical framework for integrating these processes. The recently proposed General Dynamic Model (GDM) of oceanic island biogeography promises a step towards this goal. Here, we present an analysis of causality within the GDM, and investigate its potential for the further development of island biogeographical theory. Further, we extend the GDM to inc...
