    Expanding Access to Biodiversity Literature, which is funded generously by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), will significantly increase online access to biodiversity material by positioning the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) as an on-ramp for biodiversity . The biodiversity index can be calculated by dividing the # of species by the # of organisms. The closer to 1 the biodiversity index is, the more diverse the community is. Application: To model how richness .

    GIS for Wildlife Conservation Habitat loss, global climate change, and human disruptions, such as pollution and deforestation, are threats to wildlife biodiversity and can cause fragmentation and extinction. GIS technology is an effective tool for managing, analyzing, and visualizing wildlife . SAGE Video Bringing teaching, learning and research to life. SAGE Books The ultimate social sciences digital library. SAGE Reference The complete guide for your research journey. SAGE Navigator The .

    Biodiversity is said to have three (hierarchical) levels, or components: a. Ecological (Ecosystem) Diversity: energy flow, etc.) that destruction of one kind of wildlife on the earth may upset the . incorporates these data into a statistical model to predict the responses of ecological communities to habitat loss and degradation; provides information to ongoing policy processes such as the Global Biodiversity Outlook. GLOBIO is a statistical model used to assess past, present and future human impact on biodiversity.

In a brilliant way, MacKenzie and his co-authors present the results of their last papers and discuss in a didatic manner the applications of simple improvements in statistical models /5(12). Besides being a specialist in habitat suitability and distribution models, his interests include macroecology, macroevolution, conservation, biodiversity modeling with both mechanistic and phenomenological models Cited by:   Therefore, this book, “Land Use, Climate Change and Biodiversity Modeling: Perspectives and Applications,” is unique and is distinguished from existing titles within the subject area.

In addition, it responds to the remaining controversial issue on the effects of accumulative land-use and climate change on biodiversity. The book makes important contributions to wildlife conservation of animals in several ways: (1) it highlights historical and contemporary advancements in the development of wildlife Modeling wildlife and biodiversity book models.

The last section of this book is focused on the molecular techniques used for measuring biodiversity, a critical point of the studies on biodiversity. Indeed, with molecular and analytical techniques (FISH, DNA-microarray, etc.) now we can begin to understand how marine biodiversity.

Updating the extremely successful Wildlife Toxicology and Population Modeling (CRC Press, ), Wildlife Toxicology: Emerging Contaminant and Biodiversity Issues brings together a distinguished group of international contributors, who provide a global assessment of a range of environmental stressors, including pesticides, environmental contaminants, and other emerging chemical threats, and their impact on wildlife.

There are several important areas of wildlife research and management that are inadequately covered in the second edition of Wildlife Ecology, Conservation, and a Price Range: £ - £   The book presents a set of 32 exercises that are primarily new and greatly revised versions from the book's successful first edition.

These exercises span a wide range of conservation. This page book is a compilation of articles on biodiversity with an emphasis on the need for connectivity in the design of conservation networks. The material was initially presented at a biodiversity workshop held in conjunction with the International Association of Fish and Wildlife File Size: KB.

biological diversity or biodiversity, the number of species in a given habitat. Scientists have variously estimated that there are from 3 to 30 million extant species, of which million have been classified.

biodiversity It is a key instrument to promote sustainable development and tackle the global loss of biodiversity. Biodiversity can be measured through the use of quantitativeindicators, although no single unified approach exists. Biodiversity .Studies in wildlife ecology often involve species that are hunted, trapped, or are of additional economic or aesthetic importance to humans, including species that are rare, threatened, or endangered.
