in biogeography: an isthmus or other land connection between what at other times are separate land masses
Travel by ferry from one country, via another country by road, then by another ferry crossing to a third country. An example is from Ireland by ferry to the UK, by road to the opposite coast, then ferry to France.
A land bridge, in biogeography, is an isthmus or wider land connection between otherwise separate areas, over which animals and plants are able to cross and colonise new lands. Land bridges can be created by marine regression, in which sea levels fall, exposing shallow, previously submerged sections of continental shelf; or when new land is created by plate tectonics; or occasionally when the sea floor rises due to post-glacial rebound after an ice age.
