Phylogeny and biogeography
of Valerianaceae (Dispacales) with special reference to the South American valerians.

He is currently a Visiting Professor at the Federal University of Alagoas, teaching and doing research on diverse and interdisciplinary aspects of conservation, biogeography
These results raise issues of biogeography
and the role of geography in subdividing geographic distributions of evolving lineages.
and phylogeny of Caribbean plants-Introduction.
Recent environmental surveys have revealed the existence of a vast, uncultured archaeal diversity, and the characterization of this so called archaeal dark matter is of great significance for understanding the diversity, biogeography
and ecological relevance of Archaea in general, and the evolution of cellular life on Earth in particular.
They cover quaternary sea-level and palaeotidal changes: a review of impacts on, and responses of, the marine biosphere; oceans and maritime resources in a changing climate; the short-beaked common dolphin (Dolphinus delphis) in the north-east Atlantic: distribution, ecology, management, and conservation status; the biogeography
of transient reef-fish spawning aggregations in the Caribbean: a synthesis for future research and management; and ocean ecogeochemistry.
Mammals of the Great Basin have attracted generations of scientists and prompted important studies in historical biogeography
, ecology, and conservation (e.
Biologists and paleontologists synthesize recent research and the current understanding of such aspects as the early ossification and development of the cranium and paired girdles of Chanos chanos, a new teleostean fish from the Early Late Cretaceous (Cenomanian) off southeastern Morocco and its relationships with the ostariophysans, systematics and phylogenetic relationships of cypriniformes, the state of knowledge concerning siluriform higher-level phylogeny, and the mitochondrial phylogeny of the South American electric fish (gymnotiformes) and an alternative hypothesis for the otophysan historical biogeography
of birds on mountain-tops in north western Argentina.
Vicariance and other standard phylogenetic methods of historical biogeography
are likely to be replaced by those of ecological and island biogeography
Song of the Dodo is written in the tradition of Wallace and Darwin, some of whose paths Quammen even retraced: the travel narratives are arranged to teach us about islands, biogeography
and its history, conservation, and the causes of extinctions.
