2004), for example, divided the archipelago into five main regions, based on biogeographic patterns of marine fish and macroinvertebrates.
Following this mapping exercise, we conducted a stratified random draw to determine sites for a field-sampling program based upon biogeographic region (which were based upon fish assemblages) insuring statistically equal representation of reefs throughout the SCB.
Using a proxy for the geographic diffusion barriers of Neolithic technology and an index of biogeographic endowments to isolate the exogenous component of the timing of agricultural transition, the findings indicate that countries that experienced earlier transitions to agriculture were subsequently more capable of adopting new technologies in 1000 BC, 1 AD, and 1500 AD.
