Review:


"This book does a remarkable job of covering all aspects of biodiversity--from the genetic level to landscapes, and from scientific theory to recommendations for policy development . . . . There is something here for everyone with an interest in international ecological issues, conservation biology, and the associated management options . . . . Resource managers, ecologists, conservation biologists, and others will find this book to be an excellent desktop reference for the biodiversity issue. The array of topics and the extensive literature citations would make even the most discerning scientists happy." --BioScience


"A good mixture of temperate and tropical papers, with participation by several foreign researchers, particularly from Australia. . .This will be an important book for those people involved with conservation and management of natural resources. . .An excellent choice for a graduate seminar if the price were lower." --The Condor
