 taxa distributions.
-Theoretical biogeography and speciation.
-Paleoclimatology, plate tectonics, vicariance, and panbiogeography
as        applied to biological phenomena.
-Geospatial database design, implementation, and advances.
-Modelling spatial distributions and patchiness across ecological
-Announcements of interest to biogeographers using GIS.
-Educating biologists about the advantages and opportunities of the GIS.
-Real time tracking including radio-telemetry and GPS.
-Software and modelling packages and architectures.
-Hardware requirements and limitations.

GIS in Biogeography is an unmoderated list.  The listowner is David C.
