For the not so serious scientist, there is a nice summary view of
panbiogeography by Ray Tangey titled "The problem with biogeography" in
the winter 2003 Newsletter of the Systematics Association. His final
conclusion is that "The geographic facts of biology are the key to not
only what biogeography is, its conception (ontology), but also to what
we know in biogeography, and how we go about it, its epistemology."
