Island Biogeography: taking the long view of nature’s laboratories

Abstract:

Islands provide classic model biological systems. We review how growing appreciation of geo-environmental dynamics of marine islands has led to advances in island biogeographic theory accommodating both evolutionary and ecological phenomena. Recognition of distinct island geodynamics permits general models to be developed and modified to account for patterns of diversity, diversification, lineage development and trait evolution within and across island archipelagos. Emergent patterns of diver...
