This episode—which is Number 62—is all about the major geographic divisions among birds across the planet.
Why are bowerbirds found only in Australia and on the islands of New Guinea? Why are the birds you see in India so different from those in China? Does North America have any unique, endemic bird families?
Questions like these fall within the domain of biogeography. Biogeography is the study of where living things are found and why they’re found there—both in the present and the past.
Today, we’ll be sketching out the big picture of what types of birds are found where across the world map.
By learning the basics of bird biogeography, you can get a deeper appreciation for the uniqueness of bird communities in different parts of the world.
