Abstract

Despite the fact that according to the Croatian theoretical works in geography, biogeography is considered a geographical discipline, it is poorly represented on geography departments of Croatian universities. Defined as a discipline which studies the distribution of flora and fauna, biogeography has strong links to both biology and ecology, and therefore many authors consider it a sub-discipline of those fields. The ecological branch of biogeography developed under the influence of ecology and it studies the existing environmental impacts on the distribution of organisms, while the historical branch studies the distribution and spatial relationships of organisms in the distant past. Looking from the perspective of geography defined as a discipline which studies the interrelationship between nature and society, the placing of biogeography under geography can be questioned.
