Reefs samples were randomly selected from around the country, with the number of assessment stations for each of six biogeographic regions stratified by the total area of reefs in each of these regions.
Biogeographic regionalizations represent fundamental abstractions of the geographic organization of life on Earth in response to past or current physical and biological forces, and are central to many basic and applied questions in biogeography, ecology, evolution, and conservation (Kreft& Jetz, 2010; Whittakeretal, 2013; Lomolino et al.

Color maps include vegetational zones, physiographic provinces, biotic provinces, biogeographic provinces, climate, elevation, soils, and all of these are marked with dots to indicate collection localities.

Work in other upwelling influenced areas has revealed oceanographic and herbivore related biogeographic patterns in macroalgal community compositions and biomasses, with diversity and abundances related positively to upwelling (colder, nutrient rich waters) influence, and negatively to grazer (urchin) abundances (Bustamante & Branch, 1996; Schils & Coppejans, 2003a; Sangil, Sanson, & Afonso-Carrillo, 2011).

We focus on 1) general inferences about biogeography and biogeographic history, 2) patterns of gene flow and isolation upon secondary contact and hybridization, and 3) quantifying levels of genomic divergence between closely related taxa.

Guest editors' introduction to the special issue: integrating phylogeography and ecological niche modelling In this special issue of the Folia Zoologica, we did not focus on a specific problem or a taxon, but on two key disciplines that have been widely used together in recent biogeographic studies: "Phylogeography and Ecological Niche Modelling".
