South African marine bioregions




Biogeography is defined as the study of biological life in a spatial and temporal context and is concerned with the analysis and explanation of patterns of distribution (Cox and Moore 1998). An important application of biogeographic studies is the generation of knowledge necessary to achieve adequate and representative conservation of all elements of biodiversity. Conservation of biodiversity pattern requires that a viable proportion of any habitat or species in each biogeographically distinct area is protected, either within a protected area or by management measures that mitigate threats.
