Next-generation biogeography

Historical biogeography is an integrative scientific field critical for testing evolutionary hypotheses pertinent to organismal distributions, but despite recent theoretical and analytical advances, biogeographic reconstructions continue to struggle with accuracy and rigor.

In a perspective paper published today in Frontiers in Arachnid Science, Matjaž Kuntner and Eva Turk establish that historical biogeography needs better informed dispersal probabilities, introduce the concept of next-generation biogeography, and argue that arachnids contain excellent model lineages for biogeographic research.
