There was at this time no energy-dispersive equipment available, and, last but not least, there existed no computers that would have permitted extensive on-line calculations or storage of par ameters.
With enough detailed information, it may even be possible to project changes through time of potential distributions based on environmental par ameters, thus connecting ranges and population sizes to the speciation events that followed.
