No, just because he disagrees with Johannessen doesn't make him an 
anti-diffusionist. I refer you to:

Sauer, Jonathan, _Historical Geography of Crop Plants: A Select Roster_ 
1993, CRC Press;
_______________. _Plant Migration: The Dynamics of Geographic Patterning 
in Seed Plant Species_ 1988, University of California Press;
_______________. _ Plants and Man on the Seychelles Coast: A Study in 
Historical Biogeography_ 1967, University of Wisconsin Press:

a good Sauer primer. UT's library should have them.

Thanks for the reply to my earlier request.

Happy New Year,
