A introdução a uma série de onze artigos em medidas e estimativas da biodiversidade, oito questões foram colocadas: O que é biodiversidade? Biodiversidade é somente o número de espécies em uma área? Se biodiversidade é mais do que o número de espécies como pode ser medida? Todas as espécies têm o mesmo peso? Medidas de biodiversidade incluem variância genética infraespecífica? Algumas espécies contribuem mais que outras para a biodiversidade em uma área? Existem indicadores úteis de áreas onde a biodiversidade é alta? E a extensão da biodiversidade em grupos taxonômicos podem ser estimados por extrapolação? Além disso, o conceito moderno de diversidade biológica é atribuído a Elliot R. Norse e seus colegas

Methods for the examination of organismal diversity in soils and sediments( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our lack of knowledge of the organisms dwelling in soils and sediments and of their roles in ecological processes, constitutes a major barrier to understanding how ecosystems operate. This topic has both academic and applied relevance. Thus, in order to forecast the implications of perturbations in a site on both the species present and ecosystem functioning, whether direct (e.g. pollution or physical disturbance) or indirect (e.g. climate change), methods need to be available that can be used to ascertain what organisms are present in a sample. This book provides an authoritative manual of the techniques now used for different organisms. It has been developed as part of UNESCO's contribution to the DIVERSITAS programme and implemented through the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS). Soil organisms and those inhabiting freshwater and marine sediments, from microbes (bacteria, algae, fungi, etc.) to macrofauna (earthworms, nematodes, molluscs, etc.) are all treated. The chapters are arranged by organismal groups and have been written by recognized specialists from the USA and Europe. The book makes a major contribution to the literature and will be indispensable for soil and aquatic biologists and ecologists, as well as those with a broader interest in biodiversity and environmental sciences

Marine, freshwater, and wetlands biodiversity conservation by D. L Hawksworth( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marine, coastal and wetland habitats are threatened, not only through exploitation, but also by the prospect of climate change - as ocean currents change course, sea levels rise, and rainfall patterns change. Even the once-common cod is now under threat from the combined effects of over-fishing and a dramatic change-induced decrease in the plankton that cod larvae feed on. Meanwhile, coral reefs remain especially vulnerable to rapid sea-level changes exacerbated by the effects of tourism and disease. This book gathers together a wide range of papers reporting on key research into the biodiversity conservation of these critical and increasingly threatened habitats. Collectively these papers provide a snap-shot of the types of problems they are experiencing, and offer a wealth of topical examples which render this volume especially valuable to teachers of courses in marine, freshwater and wetlands ecology, biological conservation and ecological restoration
Arthropod diversity and conservation by D. L Hawksworth( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite their enormous bulk and complexity of architecture, plants make up only around a quarter of a million of the 8 million or so species on Earth. The major components of biodiversity, instead, are the smaller, largely unseen, silent majority of invertebrates {u2013} most of which are arthropods. Vertebrates, a mere blip on the biotic horizon, are elevated in importance in the bigger scheme of things only by the human psyche. This collection of more than 30 peer-reviewed papers focuses on the diversity and conservation of arthropods, whose species inhabit virtually every recess and plane {u2013} and feature somewhere in virtually every food web {u2013} on the planet. Highlighting issues ranging from large-scale disturbance to local management, and from spatial heterogeneity to temporal patterns, these papers reflect some of the most exciting new research taking place today {u2013} and in some of the most biodiverse corners of the planet. Edited by David Hawksworth and Alan Bull, with a preface by Michael J Samways, this book will provide a valuable reference to anyone interested in the diversity and conservation of arthropods. Reprinted from Biodiversity and Conservation 15:1 (2006), excluding the paper by R. O'Malley et al., The diversity and distribution of the fruit bat fauna (Mammalia, Chiroptera, Megachiroptera) of Danjugan Island, Cauayan, Negros Occidental, Philippines (with notes on the Microchiroptera), pp. 43-56
Plant conservation and biodiversity by D. L Hawksworth( Book )

16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together a selection of original studies submitted to Biodiversity and Conservation addressing aspects of the conservation and biodiversity of plants. Plants are, along with terrestrial vertebrates, the best known organisms on Earth, and so work on them can be a model for that on less known organism groups. Further, plants are crucial to ecosystem processes, and provide habitats and food for myriads of dependent organisms. At the same time, plants are exploited for food and fuel by humans, and forests continue to be felled for the timber trade or to provide more grazing for cattle. As individual plants are not mobile, they are also particularly vulnerable to global climate change. The contributions are drawn from a wide range of countries from different continents, and collectively provide a snap-shot of the types of studies and actions being taken in plant conservation {u2013} topical examples that will make the volume especially valuable for use in conservation biology courses. Reprinted from Biodiversity and Conservation, volume 16:6 (2007)
Vertebrate conservation and biodiversity by D. L Hawksworth( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together a selection of original studies submitted to Biodiversity and Conservation that address the conservation and biodiversity of vertebrates - particularly those in terrestrial habitats. Vertebrates are, along with plants, the best-known and most intensively studied components of biological diversity on Earth. While studies on vertebrates can be expected to provide models for other groups, they can also pose their own particular problems due to their relative mobility as in some migratory birds. In addition, many mammals and fish are also subject to extensive human exploitation for food or sport. The contributions in this volume are drawn from a wide range of countries - from Australasia, East Africa, Europe, and North, Central and South America. Collectively they provide a snap-shot of the types of studies and actions being taken in vertebrate conservation - topical examples that will make the volume especially valuable for use in conservation biology courses. Reprinted from Biodiversity and Conservation, volume 16:4 (2007)
Human exploitation and biodiversity conservation by David L Hawksworth( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sustainable use of biodiversity is one of the three key objectives of the 1992 "Convention on Biological Diversity". To achieve this, sound conservation practice has to be recognized as beneficial and implemented by all who access, or use it {u2013} from subsistence farmers to skiers and pharmaceutical bioprospectors. At the same time, indigenous peoples necessarily utilize enormous numbers of plants, fungi, and fish, particularly for foods and medicines. This book gathers together a wide range of contributions addressing diverse aspects of front-line human involvement in biodiversity exploitation and conservation. Its scope is broad, the organisms explored ranging from birds, invertebrates and mammals {u2013} both terrestrial and aquatic {u2013} to crops and medicinal plants. Meanwhile, the issues addressed include land use changes, the importance of gardens, hedges and green lanes, housing developments, hunting, invasive species, local community involvement, sacred groves, socioeconomic factors and trade. These peer reviewed case studies come from studies in 17 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North and South America. Providing a snap-shot of on-going action and state-of-the-art research, rather than a series of necessarily more superficial overviews, this collection will be of particular interest to courses including biodiversity and/or conservation issues, and to advanced students and researchers working in related fields. Reprinted from Biodiversity and Conservation 15:8 (2006)
