The Song of the Dodo:
Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinctions
David Quammen
Hutchinson 1996 A book review by Danny Yee Dodos and extinctions are dinner-party topics, but island biogeography sounds like the domain of academic monographs. In Song of the Dodo Quammen writes about the popular topics for a popular audience, but sneaks in some real science on the sly. He offers a mix of travel narrative, natural history, and biography - and highlights the significance of islands in the geographical distribution of species around the planet. Quammen begins with the role biogeography played in the origins of evolutionary theory, following Alfred Russell Wallace on his expeditions around the Malay Archipelago . He then explores the "signature features" of island species and communities (such as dispersal ability, size change, and adaptive radiation), using as examples iguanas in the Galapagos, lemurs in Madagascar, Komodo dragons, and lizards on islands in the Gulf of California, among others. Turning to extinction events, he writes about some of the more famous: the dodo, the Tasmanian tiger, the passenger pigeon, the invasion of Guam by the brown tree snake, and the genocide of the Tasmanian Aborigines. Quammen next introduces the species-area relationship, with one of the few equations in the book giving the number of species as proportional to the square of the area. This is the lead in to a sympathetic and insightful sketch of the history of quantitative ecology, focused on Wilson and MacArthur and the publication of

Primarily focused on the basic biology of insects systematics, evolutionary processes, genetics, biogeography, ecology, population biology, behavior, morphology, and physiology.
Entomology Program Kansas University has a tradition of pioneering excellence in entomology that has been recognized nationally and internationally for the past 120 years. In fact, "Entomology at the University of Kansas is as old as the University itself." As the result of recent departmental merger Entomology is now a full partner in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. The newly defined Program in Entomology at KU is unique, not only because of the former department's long history, but also because it is one of a few such departments not administered within a school of agriculture. We are primarily focused on the basic biology of insects: systematics, evolutionary processes, genetics, biogeography, ecology, population biology, behavior, morphology, and physiology.

  • I have broad research interests in systematics, biogeography, and ecology. My systematic studies have focused on moths (Lepidoptera) and beetles (Coleoptera), but I am also interested in theoretical aspects of phylogenetic systematics. My biogeographic studies focus on island biogeography and the implications of climatic and tectonic changes through time, especially in the Pacific Basin. My ecological research focuses on New Guinea insects sampled with various techniques: intensive rearing from selected host plants, canopy fogging, and light trap transects. I also have a strong commitment to the application of information from systematics studies and collections to "on the ground" problems in conservation and agriculture. In order to do this, I am interested in applications of information management technology to biological diversity issues and the development of techniques to evaluate and monitor biological diversity.

The research programme is a specific Natural History Museum (NHM) response to the Convention on Biological Diversity and the lab is now an active partner in many national and international biodiversity initiatives. Its mission is to develop and apply appropriate, explicit and accountable methods to tackle problems in biogeography and in biodiversity assessment to meet conservation needs at any spatial scale (it does not provide data). It works in collaboration with the NHM Biodiversity Information Unit to create high quality biodiversity information products and services, tailored to meet the needs of different users, including natural resource managers, conservation planners and biodiversity specialists.

ISLAND BIOGEOGRAPHY and Evolution is an activity about the evolution of three species of lizards on the Canary Islands. It is designed for high school biology students. Its purpose is to demonstrate to students that evolutionary problems are complex and solutions may involve data from various disciplines of science. First, students must arrive at different phylogenetic solutions using only geographical and geological data. Then students compare the morphology of the species involved arriving at a more traditional solution to phylogeny. Finally students deduce a phylogeny based on genetic distance using DNA sequences from cutting edge biotechnology. The strength of the activity is its depth and interdisciplinary approach. This activity reinforces the interdisciplinary nature of modern science. Students utilize real data from real scientists. Students apply the principles of evolution in their reasoning to make use of this data from geology and biological science. This activity originated at Princeton University in the summer of 1995 while I was a participant in the Woodrow Wilson National Foundation Institute on Biology. Though now modified, it was written as part of a biology module on evolution called "Evolution: A Context for Biology." My original intent was to write a similar activity on Galapagos Finches, but that proved to be too complex and DNA mapping data had yet to be published.

Common name: vampire bat
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Order: Chiroptera
Family: Desmodontidae
Genus: Desmondus
Species: Desmondus rotundus
Description of Species Natural History The unique social behavior of the vampire is most characteristic in their reciprocal altruism, in which animals return favors to their mutual benefit. If vampire bats do not get their share of blood on a regular basis, they rapidly deteriorate. A bat may be close to starvation within 2-3 days (Altringham 1996). Within social groups which largely refers to females as the males roost separately to defend territories, bats that successfully feed will regurgitate back at the roosts to a hungry bat. Studies on the blood sharing behaviors indicate bats will regurgitate to related and unrelated bats within the group. It is shown that they set up a buddy system, with pairs of bats forming tight blood-sharing relationships (Altringham 1996). Refer to Figure 3 to see the weight-loss curve after feeding since donating more than 5% of its body weight will push it too close to starvation (Altringham 1996). Evolution Flight in bats is one of the most fascinating evolutionary elements and currently has two theories on the table, the arboreal and the cursorial (Altringham 1996). The arboreal suggests that tree or cliff dwelling ancestors evolved flight through a series of gliding stages. The cursorial theory, which is more recent, requires the animal take a running leap with wings outstretched sending it into the air from a glide to flight (Altringham 1996). With a basically absent fossil record in regard to flight, there is room for theory but little evidence.

Phylum: Angiospermae
Class: Dicotyledonae
Order: Caryophyllidae
Suborder: Caryophylles
Family: Mesembryanthemaceae
Subfamily: Ruschioidene Schwant
Subtribe: Lithopinae Schwant
Genus: Lithops Description They have a very short stem with two thick, fleshy leaves separated by a small slit from which a small flower will emerge about once a year. They blend in with the surrounding soil in nearly perfect stone mimicry regarding size, texture, color and shape (Turner and Picker 1993). Lithops are unique in that they grow almost completely imbedded in the soil exposing only a small oval window to the sun. Botanists have studied whether imbedding is an adaptation to the extreme temperatures and Lithops julii var. fulleri source: Burgess and Spiers 1999 dryness of their habitat (Eller and Grobbelaar 1986 and Nobel 1989). However, detailed research has shown that imbedding did not develop as a means of thermal tolerance (Turner and Picker 1993), but has more likely developed as a means of mimicry to evade grazing animals. Imbedding can also be a method to protect from excessive water loss by transpiration (Eller and Nipkow 1983).

Associate Professor
Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania, Dinosaur systematics, cladistic and morphometric analyses, Gondwana biogeography, dinosaur origins Dr. Forster's research focus is on dinosaurs. She tries to incorporate various approaches and techniques while investigating different facets of this archosaur group. Some of her recent research includes: Phylogenetic analyses of dinosaur clades. Dr. Forster is currently completing phylogenetic analysis of the Ceratopsidae (with Dr. S. Sampson) and of the Iguanodontia and Hadrosauridae.
Field research in Madagascar, South Africa, and China. Ongoing field work in Madagascar (with Dr. D. Krause) is producing a diverse, well preserved, and completely new vertebrate fauna from Upper Cretaceous strata. This fauna includes dinosaurs, birds, frogs, mammals, snakes, fish, crocodilians, and lizards. With the information gathered in these field based operations, she hopes to begin to address biogeographic questions surrounding the break-up of Gondwana. In a realated project, Dr. Forster is involved in a program of field work (with Dr. C. Ross and Dr. W. de Klerk) to search for vertebrate remains in Early Cretaceous strata in South Africa. She has recently begun working (with husband Dr. J. Clark) in Late Jurassic rocks in Xinjiang Province in western China. This work is producing a number of new, small dinosaurs, as well as other vertebrates.
Bird origins and phylogeny. Field work in Madagascar in 1995, 1996, and 1998 produced a number of new taxa of primitive birds, including the very primitive "dinosaur-bird" Rahonavis ostromi. The morphology and phylogenetic relationships of these specimens are currently under study.
