"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
"Anyone interested in the serious study of biodiversity should have a copy. I suspect it will be standard for years to come." -- Biological Conservation
