This title was first published in 2000:  An edited collection based on a workshop which explored the biological, social, ethical, economic and political pressures underlying the present perceived loss of biodiversity. It brings together philosophers, economists, biologists and others whose fields deal with the conservation of nature's diversity, and with the preservation and protection of species and ecosystems.
