Editorial Reviews


“May I congratulate [Cox and Moore] in once again, making a subject that requires of the student a certain breadth of experience and a willingness to embrace many disciplines, attractive appealing and accessible…this publication will continue to be the authoritative and highly acclaimed text for students of biogeography” Dr Malcolm Greenwood, Loughborough University, UK <!--end-->

“This is a great compendium of the science of Biogeography, broad but full of details…with new references and good coverage of recent breakthroughs. Its well-balanced coverage of most major biomes, including marine systems, really stand out”Professor George Robinson, SUNY at Albany, US

"The latest edition of Biogeography is an excellent overview of the history of biogeography and related sciences and how this has culminated in the latest advances in biogeography."
Blumea, June 2005

"All in all, Cox and Moore have written an ejoyable, very readable book..."
Systematic Biology, April 2006

"An excellent introductory text on biogeography...clearly and neatly written, very well structured and effectively illustrated...yet again, the authors have very successfully revitalized their classic text and I am absolutely certain that it will remain a bestseller for many more years to come." Martin Kent (University of Plymouth) in Progress in Physical Geography --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

The questions asked by biogeography evolve over time, and this new edition of a long-established book raises new questions concerned with such topics as global biodiversity, the roles of species in ecosystems, and the degree to which traditional biogeographical concepts can be applied to the extensive but neglected realms of the world's oceans. Marine biogeography is a new, but fast developing discipline and is included here for the first time. The book is intended for readers interested in biogeography, as well as geography, ecology, paleobiology, and evolution. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

The latest edition of this highly successful and popular textbook has been completely revised and updated to include the latest developments in biogeography. It offers excellent insight into the multidisciplinary nature of biogeography, providing the student with a sound historical base, up-to-date factual content and a clear explanation of current controversies.

Its accessible style and well-balanced coverage will strongly appeal to students, while the successful synthesis of the many fields involved and the new format will attract a broad range of teachers and lecturers in biology, geography and environmental science departments. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Barry Cox was formerly head of Biological Sciences at King's College London. He was originally a vertebrate palaeontologist, but soon became also interested in the patterns of distribution of life in the past. He has published extensively on the relations between fossil distributions and plate tectonics, how and when the mammals dispersed across the planet, competing theories on how to interpret past patterns, and the basic patterns of life today at the worldwide level. Peter Moore is a Reader in Ecology at King's College London. He first trained as a botanist/biochemist, later turning to palaeoecology and vegetation history and, ultimately, wider ecological issues including global environmental change. He retains a particular interest in wetlands. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
