Response to Comment on "An Update of Wallace's Zoogeographic Regions of the World"

Kreft and Jetz’s critique of our recent update of Wallace’s zoogeographical regions disregards the extensive sensitivity analyses we undertook, which demonstrate the robustness of our results to the choice of phylogenetic data and clustering algorithm. Their suggested distinction between “transition zones” and biogeographic regions is worthy of further investigation but is thus far unsubstantiated.
