JournalBlumea - Biodiversity, Evolution and Biogeography of Plants
AbstractIn this book a number of general topics of island biogeography are discussed mainly on the basis of case studies dealing with three archipelagos: The Hawaiian Islands (two chapters); the Juan Fernandez Islands (three chapters) and the Bonin (Ogasawara) Islands (three chapters). Two chapters deal with, respectively, Ullung Island and the South Pacific Islands. The remaining three chapters are all part of the section on general evolutionary patterns and processes. Except in some of these last chapters, there are no references to islands outside the Pacific Basin.
The depth of treatments ranges from general discussions based primarily on literature studies (such as G. D. Carr’s discussion of chromosome evolution in Hawaiian flowering plants, which is nearly entirely based on data extracted from Wagner, Herbst & Sohmer, 1990; or Bohm’s review of secondary compounds in chapter 11), to a detailed analysis of single genera (Setoguchi et al.’s chapter on evolution in Crossostylis).
