    BeschrijvingOoit afgevraagd waarom eilanden zoals de Galapagos en Hawaii zoveel unieke vogelsoorten herbergen? Biologen van onder andere Naturalis Biodiversity Center liepen rond met deze vraag, want wat verklaart het aantal vogelsoorten op een eiland? Het antwoord hierop is gebleken uit een uitgebreide studie waarbij van honderden soorten eilandvogels hun gebied, isolatie en diversiteit is bestudeerd.

    "Queríamos tentar testar a Teoria da Biogeografia das Ilhas que Robert MacArthur e Edwar Wilson propuseram em 1960. É uma teoria muito simples e elegante, mas nunca foi provada do ponto de vista global e com dados empíricos", afirmou Martim Melo, investigador do Centro de Investigação em Biodiversidade e Recursos Genéticos (CIBIO-InBIO), da Universidade do Porto.

    BeschrijvingRemarkably, to date no study has shown on a global scale how island area and isolation determine the rates at which species colonise new islands, evolve new types or go extinct. These relationships have remained elusive for decades. In a new study in Nature, a team of ornithologists, evolutionary biologists and mathematical modellers led by Dr Luis Valente (Museum für Naturkunde Berlin / Naturalis Biodiversity Center), was able to show for the first time how rates of island colonisation, speciation and natural extinction, and also species formation vary with island size and distance from the continent.

    BeschrijvingResearchers from the Department of Zoology at the University of Oxford have contributed to a monumental international study, published today in Nature, that has shown what factors determine how many bird species can be found on any given island.
