|Abstract: ||Linking pattern to process across spatial and temporal scales has
been a key goal of the field of biogeography. In January 2017, the
8th biennial conference of the International Biogeography Society
sponsored a symposium on Building up biogeography—process to pattern
that aimed to review progress towards this goal. Here we present
a summary of the symposium, in which we identified promising
areas of current research and suggested future research directions.
We focus on (1) emerging types of data such as behavioural observations
and ancient DNA, (2) how to better incorporate historical
data (such as fossils) to move beyond what we term “footprint measures”
of past dynamics and (3) the role that novel modelling
approaches (e.g. maximum entropy theory of ecology and approximate
Bayesian computation) and conceptual frameworks can play in
the unification of disciplines. We suggest that the gaps separating
pattern and process are shrinking, and that we can better bridge
these aspects by considering the dimensions of space and time
