Abstract. In H OLLOWAY () a new application of cluster analysis was described for the study of the geographical distribution of taxa. The method enabled the derivation of faunal centres by classifying genera numerically, both according to their geographical distribution and according to where their component species were concentrated.
This method was exemplified by analysis of a sample of Cited by: SANBI Biodiversity Series 13 South African Red Data Book: butterflies by G.A.

sulle farfalle sudafricane. Biogeography of Birds There are a number of ways to distinguish species of birds, the most common being morphology. Beaks, scales on legs, jaw muscles, syrinx, feather tracts, etc. all work to some degree. Physiological aspects also work – blood serum proteins, hemoglobin, and bile salts have all been used as taxonomic characters.
