Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book focuses on rarity, its spatial and temporal dynamics, causes, and interaction with conservation. Although they can be viewed from many different perspectives, rare species are of particular concern to conservationists because they tend to have a greater probability of extinction. This book therefore identifies a number of important issues both heuristic and practical.

Book News Annotation:

Presents a multidisciplinary approach to the subject of rarity of species, focusing on the definition and measurement of rarity, its spatial and temporal dynamics, its causes, and its interaction with conservation. Includes examples drawn from a wide variety of taxa.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
