Biogeographic theory offers a variety of models that can be usefully applied to archeological investigation of subsistence change in coastal habitats. The smaller West Indian islands provide fertile testing grounds for such models. Recent research has focused upon colonization processes, population growth, and subsistence change. These efforts, reviewed with reference to broader biogeographic theory, point to processes of subsistence change that may also be characteristic of coastal ecosystems elsewhere.
