Biomes and biochoria: making sense of biogeographic units

1098 1098 people viewed this event.
Current advances in biogeographic concepts and methods tend to crush in the definition and the explanatory potential of ecological versus historical classifications (i.e. the controversy between biomas and biochoras).  This has not just scientific interest, but also practical application classifying degrees of human footprint in the defined bioregions. The main goal of the seminar is therefore to discuss latitudinal and altitudinal patters of distribution in different biotic groups in different regions, in an integrated framework, for informing biogeographic regionalization and conservation priorization.
