Time and space in biogeography : response to Parenti & Ebach (2013)
de Bruyn, Mark, Stelbrink, Björn, Page, Timothy J., Phillips, Matthew J., Lohman, David J., Albrecht, Christian, Hall, Robert, von Rintelen, Kristina, Ng, Peter K.L., Shih, Hsi-Te, Carvalho, Gary R., von Rintelen, Thomas, & Katinas, Liliana (2013) Time and space in biogeography : response to Parenti & Ebach (2013). Journal of Biogeography, 40(11), pp. 2204-2206.
A recent Guest Editorial by Parenti & Ebach (2013, Journal of Biogeography, 40, 813–820) disagrees with the methods or interpretations in two of our recent papers. In addition, the authors open a debate on biogeographical concepts, and present an alternative philosophy for biogeographical research in the context of their recently described biogeographical subregion called ‘Pandora’. We disagree with their approach and conclusions, and comment on several issues related to our differing conceptual approaches for biogeographical research; namely, our use of molecular phylogenetic analyses, including time estimates; and Parenti & Ebach's reliance on taxon/general area cladograms. Finally, we re-examine their ‘tests’ supporting the existence of ‘Pandora’.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
