Biogeography is the science dealing with the patterns of species distribution and the processes that contribute to creating these patterns. It relates historical events to the isolation and size of an area as well as the availability of resources. Some historical factors include extinction, speciation and continental drift. Before the publication of the theory of island biogeography, biogeography was viewed as descriptive. It is no longer viewed that way but as a method to predict species richness using criteria such as area, immigration and extinction rates.
