Summary A definitive review of the island literature, explaining how islands have been used as natural laboratories in developing and testing ecological and evolutionary theories. - ;Island biogeography is the study of the distribution and dynamics of species in island environments. Due to their isolation from more widespread continental species, islands are ideal places for unique species to evolve, but they are also places of concentrated extinction. Not surprisingly, they are widely studied by ecologists, conservationists and evolutionary biologists alike. There is no other recent textbook devoted.
