Islands can be continental or oceanic. The latter ones, well known as test tubes or natural laboratories, are only colonized by dispersal and their biota are new assemblages of species with subsequent and potentially interesting evolutionary events. Their study however requires considering sophisticated hypotheses of colonization, keeping geological knowledge independent and sampling widely the island regional context.
