Abstract: Interest in biotas of oceanic islands is
of long standing. There are several reasons for
the continuing interest. One is the possibility
that insular evolution may in some respects
represent a small-scale model of what has occurred
on continents. Another is that, despite
all the work on the subject, the "hows" and
the "whys" of insular evolution remain inadequately
answered. Finally, there is the realization
that, with the rapid decimation of native
insular habitats, it will soon be impossible to
study many aspects of the subject (Hubbell,
1967).
