The peak of species diversity in tropical areas has mystified temperate European scientists since the exploration of the new world lead to the discovery of so many new species. The latitudinal gradient in diversity has since become a hot topic of discussion with debate about its generality and the processes that maintain it. Nowadays, more than 25 hypotheses have been dreamed up to explain the latitudinal gradients in biodiversity. In the last decade, the use of the word latitude has started to loose ground, as latitude per se is quite a weak representation of many correlated variables, e.g. local deep time history and climate.
