corridor dispersal route As originally defined by the American palaeontologist G. G. Simpson (1940), a corridor is a migration route that allows more or less uninhibited faunal interchange. Thus many or most of the animals of one faunal realm can migrate to another one. A dispersal corridor has long existed between western Europe and China via Central Asia.
