BUTTERFLIES AND PLANTS: A STUDY IN COEVOLUTION
TLDR
The relationship between butterflies and their food plants is investigated, the examination of patterns of interaction between two major groups of organisms with a close and evident ecological relationship, such as plants and herbivores. Expand
The biodiversity of species and their rates of extinction, distribution, and protection
TLDR
The biodiversity of eukaryote species and their extinction rates, distributions, and protection is reviewed, and what the future rates of species extinction will be, how well protected areas will slow extinction Rates, and how the remaining gaps in knowledge might be filled are reviewed. Expand
Late Cretaceous and Tertiary vegetation history of Africa
Twenty-five years have elapsed since Moreau (1952) completed his outstanding essay, ‘Africa since the Mesozoic: with particular reference to certain biological problems’. This valuable synthesisExpand
Global State of Biodiversity and Loss
TLDR
The dimensions and nature of the Earth's terrestrial biodiversity are examined, and the scientific facts concerning the rate of loss of biodiversity and the drivers of this loss are reviewed. Expand
Biodiversity: Extinction by numbers
TLDR
New work documents the uneven, highly clumped distribution of vulnerable species on the Earth, and pinpoints 25 so-called ‘biodiversity hotspots’, which should enable resources for conservation to be better focused. Expand
Biology of Plants.
Revised Classification of the Onagraceae
TLDR
The history of generic and suprageneric classification in Onagraceae is surveyed, the knowledge of the morphological and molecular variation in the family in a phylogenetic context is summarized, and a revised classification that reflects that phylogeny is proposed. Expand
General Principles of Classification and Nomenclature in Folk Biology
Since about 1954, modern field research has been carried out by a number of ethnographers and biologists in an effort to understand more fully the nature of folk biological classification. Much ofExpand
