About this book

With the current biodiversity crisis, the question being asked is which species can be saved, if we cannot save all? This important text provides the means for trying to answer this question. Noted systematists, palaeontologists and ecologists explore the relationship between ecology and systematics, as related to the understanding of the origin, maintenance and loss of biological diversity.
