Forests represent a remnant wilderness of high recreational value in the densely populated industrial societies, a threatened natural resource in some regions of the world and a renewable reservoir of essential raw materials for the wood processing industry. In June 1992 the United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro initiated a world-wide process of negotiation with the aim of ensuring sustainable management, conservation and development of forest resources.

The correct identification of organisms is fundamental not only for the assessment and the conservation of biodiversity, but also in agriculture, forestry, the food and pharmaceutical industries, forensic biology, and in the broad field of formal and informal education at all levels. However, since the first Meeting of the Systematics Association on Ā«Biological identification with computersĀ», in 1973, few scientific events have been dedicated to this subject.

Biodiversity Conservation and Phylogenetic Systematics: Preserving our evolutionary heritage in an extinction crisis

Biodiversity Conservation and Phylogenetic Systematics: Preserving our evolutionary heritage in an extinction crisis
Springer | Ecology | April 14 2016 | ISBN-10: 3319224603 | 390 pages | pdf | 12.96 mb

Editors: Pellens, Roseli, Grandcolas, Philippe (Eds.)
This book provides a fast and reliable way of understanding the role of phylogenetic diversity in present biodiversity conservation frame work
It can be very useful for graduate, master and PhD students as it discusses basic questions such as the way we value phylogenetic diversity, gives guidelines for the choice of measures and provides detailed information on new methodological solutions
The examples given here show both that it can be applied to many cases and be very useful to policy makers
