Given the reality of limited money for conservation efforts, there is a compelling need for scientists to help conservation practitioners set priorities and identify species most in need of urgent attention. This book provides the scientific approaches and analyses available for asking what we can expect from losing species. The contributors are outstanding ecologists, theoreticians, and evolutionary biologists and they discuss whether we can identify species that play key roles in ecosystems before they are lost forever.
The contributors are: SEB Abella, GC Chang, D Doak, AL Downing, WT Edmondson, A Flecker, MJ Ford, CDG Harley, EG Leigh Jr., S Lubetkin, SM Louda, M Marvier, P McElhany, BA Menge, SE Moore, WF Morris, S Naeem, S Palumbi, A Power, TA Rand, R Root, M Ruckelshaus, J Ruesink, DE Schindler, TW Schoener, D Simberloff, DA Spiller, M Wonham, and JT Wooten.
I recommend this book both as practical advice for conservation practitioners, and as a summary of recent theory and experiments for any ecologist interested in the interface between species and their communities and ecosystems. -- Gareth J. Russell Ecology
