Sequel to the landmark 1988 text and a renewed call for urgency which updates readers on how much we already know and how much remains to be identified scientifically. It explores new strategies for quantifying, understanding, and protecting biodiversity, and also describes our growing understanding of how megacentres of diversity (rainforests, coral reefs, etc.) are formed, maintained, and lost; what can be learned from mounting bird extinctions; and how conservation efforts for Neotropical primates have fared. It also examines ecosystem restoration, sustainable development, and agricultural impact.
