Conservation evaluation and phylogenetic diversity
Protecting biological diversity with limited resources may require placing conservation priorities on different taxa. A system of priorities that reflects the value of taxonomic diversity can beExpand
Compositional dissimilarity as a robust measure of ecological distance
The robustness of quantitative measures of compositional dissimilarity between sites was evaluated using extensive computer simulations of species' abundance patterns over one and two dimensionalExpand
COULD A CLADOGRAM THIS SHORT HAVE ARISEN BY CHANCE ALONE?: ON PERMUTATION TESTS FOR CLADISTIC STRUCTURE
Abstract Absolute criteria for evaluating cladistic analyses are useful, not only because cladistic algorithms impose structure, but also because applications of cladistic results demand someExpand
Cladistic permutation tests for monophyly and nonmonophyly
Recent work on randomization or permutation tests for cladistic structure (Archie, 1989a, 1989b; Faith, 1990; Faith and Cranston, 1991) has revealed some dramatic cases in which apparentlyExpand
Preserving the evolutionary potential of floras in biodiversity hotspots
One of the biggest challenges for conservation biology is to provide conservation planners with ways to prioritize effort. Much attention has been focused on biodiversity hotspots. However, theExpand
Essential Biodiversity Variables
A global system of harmonized observations is needed to inform scientists and policy-makers. Reducing the rate of biodiversity loss and averting dangerous biodiversity change are international goals,Expand
Compositional dissimilarity as a robust measure of ecological distance
The robustness of quantitative measures of compositional dissimilarity between sites was evaluated using extensive computer simulations of species’ abundance patterns over one and two dimensionalExpand
Converting Endangered Species Categories to Probabilities of Extinction for Phylogenetic Conservation Prioritization
Background Categories of imperilment like the global IUCN Red List have been transformed to probabilities of extinction and used to rank species by the amount of imperiled evolutionary history theyExpand
Forecasting the Effects of Global Warming on Biodiversity
ABSTRACT The demand for accurate forecasting of the effects of global warming on biodiversity is growing, but current methods for forecasting have limitations. In this article, we compare and discussExpand
