You should consider getting ahold of a copy of the book _Areography_ by
Eduardo Rappaport (full citation below) for some intersting ideas, but
more directly relevant, doing a citations index search for articles in the
botanical literature that have cited him: they are very likely to have
collected the sorts of data in which you are interested...
Rappaport was very interested in geographic range, and, loosely speaking,
range "geometry", as a taxonomic property, and used many examples from the
floras and faunas of South America.
