Editorial Reviews

Review


"The writing is clear throughout, and chapters end with a prospectus on future directions and a summary of key points. The strength of the volume is Parts III and IV on, respectively, species abundance distributions and aspects of diversity other than abundance. The former, in particular, contains a set of closely connected chapters that walk through the various concepts and metrics with clear guidelines on which of the very many metrics are the most useful." -- Samuel M. Scheiner, Arlington, Virginia

I have used Anne Magurran's first book for years in my research and teaching. I met her a few years ago and new that this new book was underways. It is an excellent addition to the first, more technical and basic book, and should be read together.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's the best book for people who are interested in learning the meaning of and how to measure biodiversity. I'm an enthusiastic reader of "Measuring Biodiversity" (Anne Magurran) and this new book is a comprehensive "upgrade". The contents are accessible for beginners and seniors researchers.
