Similarly, you may ask, what is anything relating to the science of the distribution of animals around the globe?
Biogeography is a branch of geography that studies the past and present distribution of the world's many animal and plant species and is usually considered to be a part of physical geography as it often relates to the examination of the physical environment and how it affected species and shaped their distribution
which type of distribution is the most common in nature and why? Explanation: The most general pattern of distribution in nature is clustered. This is because the resources are distributed intermittently in the environment. Thus, if the resources are rare, or because of the social element, the individuals would cluster together in the region where these factors become auspicious.
Hereof, how are species distributed globally?
Species are distributed into biomes by global climate patterns and into communities whose composition changes regularly as species interact. The four factors that determine the number of species found in a community are latitude, time, habitat size, and distance from other communities.
Why is species distribution important?
It is important to understand some of the terms related to the origin and distribution of species. A species which is found within its natural or original area of distribution (historic or current) based on its potential for natural dispersal. This species forms part of the natural biotic communities within the area.
