As the first book on the conservation biology of invertebrate animals - the predominant components of most global communities - this volume synthesizes much important information in this emerging science. Global in scope, the book deals with animals in terrestrial, marine, and freshwater communities. Also included are chapters on biodiversity, rationale and priorities for invertebrate conservation and practical conservation, and suggestions on agendas for the future. Many examples are discussed, and comprehensive references given. A broad audience from conservationists and environmental scientists to specialists in invertebrate biology will want to add this to their list of sources.
