An invaluable addition to the "biodiversity" bookshelf 21 Oct 1998
By Osha Gray Davidson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"Biodiverity II" is a fascinating and important collection of essays on nearly every facet of biodiversity. What makes this book so rich is that each essay is written by the leading expert in his or her field. And you don't need to be a scientist to enjoy Biodiversity II--I'm not, and I found it very accessible.
Essential for any course in Conservation Biology 18 May 2010
By Adesh Seuraj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this book several times as a reference for many of my research papers during an MSc program. The book is a compendium of different papers/topics related to biodiversity that spans some of the greatest works by luminaries such as Erwin, Raven, and Gaston. Some of the papers are a bit old but relevant nonetheless. The sections on species survival commissions and taxon advisory groups were well illustrated using primates like the Golden Lion Tamarin, and for the most part would make a great complement to Primack's text on conservation biology.
Review of Biodiversity II 16 Sep 2013
By Professor Gillian White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is very informative and academic. It is for the devoted conservationist. I have rated it as 3 stars because it is now out of date with latest statistics around 2000. This leaves me curious as to what is happening with the various biological resources today.

A Must-Have for Environmental Economists 22 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a book that every environmental economist should have in collection. It covers a wide range of issues from the many aspects of biodiversity to its assessment and conservation. Its content is systematic and somewhat technical, and yet accessible for non-biologists. I use this book as an aid for research, and I've found that the case studies to be quite helpful.
