Frontiers of Biogeography

Frontiers of Biogeography bannerUC Merced



Vignette sketch of the altitudinal variations in the vegetation of the Andes, extracted from Berghaus H. (ed.) Physikalischer Atlas oder Samlung von Karten (1849 – 1851, Gotha, Verlag von Justus Perthes). The vignette shows a clear influence of Alexander von Humboldt’s work, which is highlighted in this issue of Frontiers of Biogeography (11.2) by the editorial of Hoorn et al. (e44178) and the perspective from Keppel and Kreft (e43187). Image from Buttimer, A. (2012, Epistemology, History, Teaching, 616, doi:10.4000/cybergeo.25478).
