This book provides both the conceptual basis and technological tools that are necessary to identify and solve problems related to biodiversity governance. The authors discuss intriguing evolutionary questions, which involve the sometimes surprising adaptive capacity of certain organisms to dwell in altered and/or changing environments that apparently lost most of their structure and functionality. Space and time heterogeneities are considered in order to understand the patterns of distribution and abundance of species and the various processes that mold them. The book also discusses at which levela€”from genes to the landscape, including individuals, populations, communities, and ecosystemsa€”men should intervene in nature in order to prevent the loss of biodiversity.Clarendon Press, Oxford, pp 251a€“268 Faith DP (2008a) Phylogenetic diversity and conservation.
