Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Compiled by the World Conservation Monitoring Centre, with help from numerous national and international conservation groups, this information-packed reference begins with an overview of biodiversity, measuring genetic diversity, systematics and the definition of species, and how species are inventoried. Hundreds of tables, graphs, and maps, with descriptive text, provide an incomparable source of data, making this a must for any library supporting conservation, ecology, or environmental programs or studies.
