Biogeography is the study of the distribution of species and ecosystems in geographic space and through geological sms and biological communities often vary in a regular fashion along geographic gradients of latitude, elevation, isolation and habitat area. Phytogeography is the branch of biogeography that studies the distribution of plants. "every species has come into existence coincident both in space and time with a pre-existing closely allied species." For example, occupants of newly formed oceanic islands are more closely related to occupants of nearby landmasses than to those of distant landmasses.

The history of post-confederation Canada began on July 1, , when the British North American colonies of Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia were united to form a single Dominion within the British Empire. Upon Confederation, the United Province of Canada was immediately split into the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. The colonies of Prince Edward Island and British Columbia joined.
Time synchronous correlation of the graptolite zones with the shelly fossil stages is imprecise because the occurrence of the two types of organisms in the same deposit is so rare. Two sets of graptolite zones are shown for the early part of the Ashgill because graptolites of that time interval were distributed in two faunal provinces. Recent benthonic Foraminifera from 73 stations in the Drake Passage between South America and Antarctica have been analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively. A bathymetric zonation as Cited by:

While the northern hemisphere's continents have separated only in geologically younger times, the southern hemisphere's continents have been separated for a longer time.
Fauna is all of the animal life present in a particular region or time. The corresponding term for plants isfauna and other forms of life such as fungi are collectively referred to as biota. Zoologists and paleontologists use fauna to refer to a typical collection of animals found in a specific time or place, e.g.
the "Sonoran Desert fauna" or the "Burgess Shale fauna". In book: Geological Problem Solving with Microfossils, Chapter: Biogeographic provinces and patterns of diversity in selected Upper Cretaceous (Santonian-Maastrichtian) larger foraminifera.
Faunal Provinces The Cambrian Period is noteworthy from a biologic standpoint because it marks the appearance of most multicellular phyla that have populated the Earth. Faunal provincialism tended to be strong, and biostratigraphic zonal schemes based on benthic and nektobenthic taxa generally cannot be applied beyond their provincial.
Passive extrapolation of microevolutionary theory into the vastness of geological time has often led paleontologists astray. Competitive interaction may rule in local populations, but differential response to mass extinctions (surely not a matter of conventional competition) may set the relative histories of large groups through geological by: Book Reviews Paleobiogeography Atlas of Palaeobiogeography.

Biogeography and Biodiversity of Western Atlantic Mollusks is the first book to use quantitative methodologies to define marine molluscan biogeographical patterns. It traces the historical development of these patterns for the subtropical and tropical western Atlantic.
The faunal provinces—Carolinian, Caribbean, and Brazilian—are. Paleobiogeography is the study of the geographical distribution of faunas and floras in the past. It can be divided into paleozoogeography and paleophytogeography, dealing with faunas and floras respectively. The fossil record represents the preserved and recognized spectrum of all life during the past three billion or more years, and constitutes the evidence on which are based the reconstruction and synthesis of the phylogenetic organization and integration of past life on this planet.
Faunal provinces in space and time, Geol. Spec. Issue, 4. The book discusses the multistage process of evolving new taxa caused by eustatic fluctuations, ecological stress, and evolutionary selection. Drawing on his decades of intensive field work, the author defines three western Atlantic molluscan provinces and 15 subprovinces based on his Provincial Combined Index, a modern refinement of Valentine.
The thermal buoyancy produced by mantle insulation may explain the pulses of rapid motion for Palaeozoic Gondwana and ultimately, the massive outpouring of flood basalts during its Mesozoic breakup (Meert et al., ; Veevers, ; e.g., the Ferrar–Karoo–Parana provinces).
Interestingly, the time period between final Gondwana assembly (c. Progressive widening of newly generated ocean basins may laterally displace sialic “borderlands” and also lead to the development of distinct faunal provinces. Subsequent closure of ocean basins may result in the physical juxtaposition of sedimentary provinces, source areas, and faunal provinces which originally developed in widely.
Marine biogeography is a subfield of the biogeography aimed at understanding the patterns and processes governing the distribution of marine taxa at geographic scales. Marine biogeography is related to several disciplines and subdisciplines, including marine biology and ecology, physical and biological oceanography, ecophysiology, genetics.
