Dear all,
Does anyone know of a paper giving some analytical substance to what Wallace
did - the other century - by defining his zoogeographic regions?

I seem to remember having seen a paper (was it in 'Geology'??? published
some time in the '70's?) analyzing the distributions of mammal families and
coming up with some regionalization, but i'm struggling to find the
reference now.

Pointers to any other analytical approaches to worldwide zoogeographic or
geobotanical regionalization will be greatly appreciated.
