Zoogeography

     

GEOGRAPHICAL DISTRIBUTION OF ANIMALS

     Zoogeography is the study of distribution of animals and plants on our planet, which occur in different regions of the world in a distinct pattern. The distribution of some animal species is so peculiar that it is difficult to explain their occurrence in a particular region.  Zoogeography attempts to understand the complexities as well as the simplicity in the distribution of animals in the light of evolutionary and environmental influences.
