As the first book on the conservation biology of invertebrate animals - the predominant components of most global communities - this volume synthesises much important information in this emerging science. Global in scope, and dealing with animals in terrestrial, freshwater, and marinecommunities, the book includes chapters on biodiversity, rationale and priorities for invertebrate conservation, and practical conservation, and suggests practical agendas for the future. Many examples are discussed, and comprehensive references given.
