Sectorial Attribution of the Range Types Proposed by K. B. Gorodkov for the Northern Palaearctic

  • A. F. Emeljanov


The types of distribution ranges proposed by K.B. Gorodkov for the Northern Palaearctic are compared with the system of landscape-biogeographical sectors developed by the author. Most of the arealogical types distinguished by K.B. Gorodkov fall within the sector limits in the author's system; a few obvious deviations may indicate the existence of some second-level sector boundaries not yet revealed.
