Several biotic interchanges are known from the history of life. The Great American Interchange. The most famous is the Great American Interchange, which occurred when the modern Isthmus of Panama rose out of the sea and the South and North American continents reconnected. South American ecosystems suffered one of the greatest biogeographical events, after the establishment of the Panamian land bridge, called the “Great American Biotic Interchange” (GABI). This refers to the exchange, in several phases, of land mammals between the Americas; this event started during.   The biotic and geologic dynamics of the Great American Biotic Interchange are reviewed and revised. Information on the Marine Isotope Stage chronology, sea level changes as well as Pliocene and Pleistocene vegetation changes in Central and northern South America add to a discussion of the role of climate in facilitating trans-isthmian by: The Great American Biotic Interchange (Topics in Geobiology Book 4) Kindle Edition by Francis G.

  This dispersion across continents is known as the Great American Biotic Interchange (GABI) (Smith and Klicka, ). The GABI allowed organisms to disperse but there are a few puzzling details about it. First of all, there was a greater north to south dispersion than south to north. Second, birds remained in their home continents until the GABI. The Great American Biotic Interchange (Topics in Geobiology) Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. Edition by Francis G.
