As highlighted by Alfred Russel Wallace in 1876, the fauna and flora changes significantly as one moves from one biogeographical region to another. September’s issue features a review by Ignacio Ferro and Juan Morrone which explores the properties that distinguish true biogeographical transition zones from other discontinuities of taxa related to geography.

Biogeography is also explored by Pedro Abellán and Jens-Christian Svenning in a paper which highlights the role of Late Quaternary climatic stability in determining the patterns of endemism and phylogeography across animal species in the Iberian Peninsula.

The remaining 23 papers are made up of four on plants, seven on invertebrates and twelve on vertebrates. For example, take a look at the paper by Frida Rosengren and Nils Cronberg on the adaptive reasons for nannandry (dwarf males) in a moss and Csilla Ari’s report on evidence for rapid coloration changes in manta rays.
