Abstract

But what is biogeographical region? There are different definitions, one of which is written by Wallace (1894): “…those primary divisions of the earth’s surface of approximately continental extent, which are characterized by distinct assemblages of animal types.” Review and analysis of many zoogeographical schemes for easier checking how the orders of Arachnida fit into them.
