A synthesis on the subject of rarity in plants and animals. The text provides information on the causes and consequences of rarity, its dynamics and the different forms it takes. The book considers appropriate measures of rarity, non-interdependence of abundance and range, the dynamics of small populations and narrow ranges and patterns of rarity.
'This advanced work should be studied by wildlife biologists, conservation biologists, and ecologists.' Choice 'Ecologists are fortunate to have such a solid foundation for the ideas and patterns that contribute to our notions and interpretations of rarity.' Ecology '...few population biologists or conservation ecologists can afford not to have this book to hand. A book on rarity is itself a rarity, and we should thank the author and publisher for noticing and partially filling a gap in the literature.' Biodiversity Letters 'Specially welcome is this book by an acknowledged expert in the field... it all adds up to a remarkably successful synthesis that should appeal to both theoretical biologists in their laboratories and conservation biologists on the ground.'
