About this book

The book is the first comprehensive analysis of the macroecology and geobotany of endemic vascular plants with case-studies and analyses from different regions in the world. Endemism is a pre-extinction phenomenon. Endemics are threatened with extinction. Due to international nature conservation policies and due to the perception of the public the concept’s importance is increasing. Endemism can result from different biological and environmental processes. Depending on the process conservation measures should be adapted. Endemic vascular plant taxa, in the setting of their species composition and vegetation types are important features of landscapes and indicators of the quality of relating habitats. The book is an important basis for biologists, ecologists, geographers, planners and managers of nature reserves and national parks, and people generally interested in nature conservation and biogeography of vascular plants.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Researchers, students, land managers, and interested general readers will likely find this well-written book a valuable reference, particularly if they are interested in plant ecology, evolution, diversity, biogeography, or conservation. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners; informed general audiences.” (A. L. Jacobsen, Choice, Vol. 51 (8), April, 2014)
