Biogeographic Patterns of South American Anurans
Although biogeographical patterns of amphibians have been explored in the literature, major focus is given to global-scale studies or to specific biogeographic approaches at a continental-scale
In this book we revisit the macroecological patterns of amphibians already explored in the literature and add new approaches to understand amphibian distribution in South America.
We will analyse the spatial patterns of phylogenetic (degree of relatedness of species) and functional diversity
We will also propose biologically important areas for amphibian conservation in South America considering different biological metrics
