However, there is a dearth of comprehensive textbooks on biodiversity science which could serve undergraduate and graduate students/5(3). This important book for scientists and nonscientists alike calls attention to a most urgent global problem: the rapidly accelerating loss of plant and animal species to increasing human population pressure and the demands of economic development.
Based on a major conference sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences and the Smithsonian Institution, Biodiversity creates a. So biodiversity as a concept emerged as a way of highlighting the precious nature of that living world and highlighting the need for human beings to think more carefully about the values and benefits that they obtain from the living world, from biodiversity.
