    The West Indies harbor a diverse flora and fauna with high levels of endemism. This, coupled with a complex geological history, has attracted interest in the historical biogeography of the region. The West Indies is a geologically complex island system consisting of 7, islands and islets stretching over 3, km from the Florida peninsula of North America south-southeast to the northern coast of Venezuela. These islands include active volcanoes, low-lying atolls, raised limestone islands, and large fragments of continental crust containing tall mountains and insular rivers.

    Great reading for an introduction to the history of the West Indies. This was the seminal text used in schools for decades. There are more texts now, but this book made a great contribution/5.

A major problem in dealing with the biogeography of the herpetofaunas of Middle America and the West Indies is a lack of evidence defining monophyletic lineages, and the absence of phylogenetic analyses of taxa within those lineages.
