Product description

Review

“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

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.
