Biogeography is the study of the changing distributions of species and groups of species in space and time, and the physical, biological, and cultural factors that influence distribution patterns. Increasingly quantitative, statistical and inferential, biogeography uses phylogenetic and geological information to infer long-term and large-distance patterns in distribution of clades, including extinct species. Ecological approaches consider distribution of extant species as a function of modern conditions, such as climate and latitude. These approaches help scientists to understand species distributions and predict future changes.
