About this book

The first attempt to synthesise our current understanding of biodiversity in the great European hot spot. The conservation of biodiversity is one of today's great ecological challenges but Balkan biodiversity is still poorly understood, in a region with complex physical geography and a long history of political conflict. The Balkans exhibit outstanding levels of endemism, particularly in caves and ancient lakes such as Ohrid; lying at the crossroads of Europe and Asia they are also renowned as a focus of Pleistocene glacial refugia. This volume unites a diverse group of international researchers for the first time. Its interdisciplinary approach gives a broad perspective on biodiversity at the level of the gene, species and ecosystem, including contributions on temporal change. Biological groups include plants, mammals, spiders and humans, cave-dwelling organisms, fish, aquatic invertebrates and algae.

Media reviews
From the reviews: "This is an attractive book that is rich in both information and ideas, with an abundance of tables, species lists, maps and other illustrations. The editors have done an excellent job of ensuring that the papers are all presented to a consistently high standard. A subject index is provided. It should be appreciated by those with an interest in biodiversity and conservation, and is an essential volume for anyone who does, or intends to do, research on any aspect of biodiversity in the Balkans." (D. J. Horne, Journal of Paleolimnology, Vol. 38, 2007)
