First off, What is BIOGEOGRAPHY?
It is usually considered to be a part of geography as it often relates to the examination of the environment and how it affects species and shaped their distribution across Earth.
As such it studies the world's biomes and taxonomy - the classification and naming of species. In addition, it has strong ties to biology, ecology and evolution.
The History of Biogeography
Evidence of Biogeography: Finches
Evidence of Biogeography: Tortoises
Evidence of Biogeography: Mockingbirds
Evidence of Biogeography: Iguanas
Evidence of Biogeography: Camels
So...What does this have to do with Biology?
When you look through this, you can relate this to the puzzle we had as an activity. Darwin had to prove the evidence to show that natural selection is a part of evolution. To begin with he needed to find the missing pieces to the puzzle, which is of course is the iguanas , mockingbird, tortoises, and finches. By studying these animals (biogeography) he put together the evidence, and by finding the similarities he finally proved Natural selection.
