    Reviews & endorsements

    'Although there has been a great deal published on the topic of biodiversity the sheer size and scope of this volume must make it one of the most authoritative leading comments … This must be seen as a work of the highest scholarship and a considerable step forward in the study of biodiversity - a classic of its kind … a standard requirement for HE libraries, senior schools would also find much to recommend it.' TEG News
