Biodiversity : Przewalski's horse, Edna's trillium, the giant squid, and over 1.5 million other species

"Biodiversity is a collection of essays on taxonomy, palaeobiology, evolution, biogeography, population biology, ecology (micro- and macro- ), conservation biology, and other sub-disciplines that make up the study of the diversity of life on earth. Empirical rather than theoretical, these essays draw strongly upon the author's observations and travels during thirty years of fieldwork as a naturalist in North America and Asia. Biodiversity may be used as an introductory text in undergraduate biodiversity or conservation biology courses or as supplementary reading in more advanced courses."--Jacket
