The Handbook of Australasian Biogeography is the most comprehensive overview of the biogeography of Australasian plants, fungi and animal taxa in a single volume. This volume is unique in its coverage of marine, freshwater, terrestrial, and subterranean taxa. It is an essential publication for anyone studying or researching Australasian biogeography. The book contains biogeographic reviews of all major plant, animal and fungal groups in Australasia by experts in the field, including a strong emphasis on invertebrates, algae, fungi and subterranean taxa. It discusses how Australasia is different from the rest of the world and what other areas share its history and biota.

Although impossible to cover all taxonomic groups, the book significantly discusses the biogeography of not only the usual groups of flowering plants and terrestrial vertebrates, but insects, arachnids, marine fishes, algae (diatoms and seaweeds), terrestrial fungi, and subterranean "cave" animals (terrestrial and aquatic troglobionts). This book achieves the goals set out by Ebach in his preface, and I recommend it highly to researchers, teachers, and students. -- Pauline Ladiges, School of BioSciences, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, in The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol 93, 2018
