T he biodiversity of the planet is rapidly being depleted, largely as a direct and indirect consequence of human activities (the ‘sixth extinction’: Leakey and Lewin, 1995). IUCN, the World conservation Union, recognizes the need to conserve biodiversity at three levels: genetic, species and ecosystem diversity (McNeely et al, 1990). Genetics is known to be involved in the first and second of these, but has not previously been recognized as important in ecosystem conservation (Frankham et al… Expand
