Helmut M van Emden, Otto T Solbrig
The loss of biodiversity of organisms and the effects of global change (including changes in soil, water, vegetation and atmosphere) are two major issues that confront today's biologists and environmental scientists. The objective of this book is to assess biodiversity loss in the context of global change. The first three chapters deal with organizations, political and general questions. These are followed by consideration of the meaning and practical consequences of complexity and non-linearity, the significance for biodiversity studies of advances in molecular biology and population genetics, and interactions between biota and the atmosphere. The third part of the book assesses overall biodiversity and biodiversity in microorganisms, marine systems, terrestrial systems and in the past. Three chapters dealing with the management of biodiversity conclude the book, which addresses a topical issue, of interest to a wide range of biological and environmental scientists.Helmut M van Emden is the author of 'Biodiversity and Global Change' with ISBN 9780851989310 and ISBN 0851989314.
