Biogeography is the study of distribution of biological species, over space and time, among random habitats. Recently developed Biogeography-Based Optimization (BBO) is a technique, where solutions of the problem under consideration are named as habitats; similar to chromosome in Genetic Algorithms (GAs) and particles in Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). Feature sharing among various habitats, i.e., exploitation, is made to occur due to migration operator whereas exploration of new SIV values, similar to that of GAs, is accomplished with mutation operator.
