Zoogeography of primates in insular Southeast Asia: species-area relationships and the effects of taxonomy

Nijman, Vincent; Meijaard, Erik


Given its complex zoogeography and large number of islands insular Southeast Asia makes an excellent subject for studying the interrelationships of species richness, island area and isolation. The islands are merely highpoints of an immense shallow continental shelf which during Pleistocene glacial periods was exposed periodically as dry land connecting the now isolated islands with one another. The area is home to a large number of primate taxa, including many endemic to the region (Nasalis,...[Show more]
