Textbook of Biodiversity

Front Cover
Science Publishers, Jan 10, 2003 - Business & Economics - 260 pages
Over the last two decades, an increasing body of information has been added to the biodiversity science and the subject matter has become more and more voluminous. Biodiversity has now become a multidisciplinary subject in which concepts, ideas and methodologies have been contributed by a number of other disciplines. However, there is a dearth of comprehensive textbooks on biodiversity science which could serve undergraduate and graduate students. This book presents the concepts, themes and ideas on this ever-growing multi-disciplinary subject.
