Biodiversity monitoring and conservation : bridging the gap between global commitment and local action

Author: Ben Collen; Zoological Society of London.
Publisher: Chichester, West Sussex, UK ; Hoboken, NJ : Wiley-Blackwell, John Wiley & Sons Inc., 2013. ©2013
Series: Conservation science and practice series, no. 13.

Summary:
As the impacts of anthropogenic activities increase in both magnitude and extent, biodiversity is coming under increasing pressure. Scientists and policy makers are frequently hampered by a lack of information on biological systems, particularly information relating to long-term trends. Such information is crucial to developing an understanding as to how biodiversity may respond to global environmental change.  Read more...
