Michael Heads' assessment of the book is founded on his long-standing belief, following Croizat, that long-distance dispersal is an insignificant process and Author: Aldo Zullini. Understanding the biogeography of Australia requires knowledge of both existing and former environments.

The existing environment is discussed elsewhere in the volume but a few salient points should be reiterated. Three-quarters of Australia is either arid or semi-arid and even much of the better-watered fringes has long dry seasons. Vast stretches of ocean separate it from other land masses.

A very informative, interesting and well written book about Australian rainforests from monsoonal forests of northern Australia to cool temperate rainforests of Tasmania.

Early Ordovician faunas of the Georgina Basin, Tasmania, and the Mount Arrowsmith sequences have no species, and very few genera, in common with those of the Amadeus and Canning basins. This suggests that no sea link crossed Australia at this by: MacDonald MA, Kirkpatrick JB, 'Explaining bird species composition and richness in eucalypt-dominated remnants in subhumid Tasmania', Journal of Biogeography, 30, (9) pp.

The Native Trees of Tasmania authored by Jamie Kirkpatrick and illustrated by Sue Backhouse is now in it’s seventh edition, a testimonial to the endearing qualities of illustrated guides. There’s a new book on Tasmanian wattles titled Wattles of Tasmania now out in bookshops which follows in the tradition of the illustrated field guide.

Four new species of the subgenus Dugesia from the Mediterranean region and the Middle East are described: D. liguriensis from northern Italy, D. arcadia from the Peloponnesos (Greece), D. vestibularis (=D.

cretica form C) from Iran and D. nansheae from Iraq.D. arcadia is closely related to D. minotauros and D. iranica while D. nansheae shows affinities with the oriental species of the subgenus.

Bass Strait, which presently isolates Tasmania from the adjacent Australian mainland, has acted as a land bridge during the lower sea levels of Pleistocene glaciations (Littlejohn, ).

Thus there has been opportunity for repeated migrations and subsequent differentiation of isolated populations ( Cited by: Australian Rainforests Islands of Green in a Land of Fire.

It might, for instance, examine the distribution of species on a single tree (Krömer and Kessler, ; Schuettpelz and Trapnell, ), or the frequency and abundance of species over large regions (Ruokolainen et al., ; Lwanga et al., ; Tuomisto et al., The recent commentary by Woinarski (, Global Ecology and Biogeography, doi: /geb) disagreed with our conclusions on the correlates of decline in the marsupials of tropical Australia (Fisher et al.,Global Ecology and Biogeography, 23, –).We compared traits of species that were associated with range decline in southern and northern Australia.

Functional biogeography, for example, combines the mechanistic focus of functional ecology with the large eco‐evolutionary scales of biogeography (Violle, Reich, Pacala, Enquist, & Kattge, ) and thus provides a direct link between measures of organismal performance and a wide range of abiotic and biotic by: 8.

The dramatic inclines of Tasmania’s topography, its volatile climate, together with the wild and dense temperate forest, which covers a third of the state, form a forbidding mise-en-scene suggestive of a Gothic sublime.
