"Seldom are rare or poorly known species—often invertebrates and nonvascular plants—the targets of conservation planning. The consequence of such oversight for biodiversity conservation is the topic of this well-edited book, targeted to scientists who work closely with land managers to conserve terrestrial biodiversity and to managers responsible for implementing conservation strategies. The scope is broad, addressing legal, social, economic, and political issues as well as the obvious scientific challenges. This book clearly fills a gap in conservation biology literature by emphasizing the potential importance of species that often constitute the majority in many ecological communities."
