This chapter outlines a systematic biogeographic method for proposing biogeographic classifications based on the distribution and relationships of biotic areas, incorporating geological and geographical data. Areagrams (area cladograms) and taxon-area cladograms (TACs) are two types of branching diagrams used to represent different types of biogeographi information. The chapter describes the significant differences between areagrams and TACs, and explores how these differences affect biogeographic analyses.

Keywords:   systematic biogeographic method, biotic areas, areagrams, area cladograms, taxon-area cladograms, TACs
