Just a little more information…

Historical Biogeography is concerned with relationships among and between species —the true genetic relationship of taxa. It deals with evolutionary processes occurring over millions of years on a large scale.

The five biogeographic methods are: dispersalism, phylogenetic biogeography, panbiogeography, Cladistic biogeography, and parsimony analysis of endemicity.

Cladistic biogeography assumes a correspondence between taxonomic relationships and area relationships, where comparisons between area cladograms derived from different taxa allow one to obtain general area cladograms. The most important Cladistic biogeographic procedures are: component analysis, Brooks’s parsimony analysis, three-area statements, and reconciled trees.
