Simon Fraser University, Burnaby BC V5A 1S6, Canada
Conserv Biol 20:1670-8. 2006..We recommend developing a mechanism to incorporate a species' genetic value into the prioritization framework...
- Evolutionarily distinctive species often capture more phylogenetic diversity than expectedDavid W Redding
BISC, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, Canada V5A 1S6 IRMACS, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, Canada V5A 1S6
J Theor Biol 251:606-15. 2008..The simplest measure, the age of a species, performed surprisingly well, suggesting that new measures that focus on tree shape near the tips may provide a transparent alternative to more complicated full-tree approaches...
- Evolutionary distinctiveness, threat status, and ecological oddity in primatesDavid W Redding
Biological Sciences, Simon Fraser University, 8888 University Drive, Burnaby V5A 1S6, Canada
Conserv Biol 24:1052-8. 2010..If similar patterns hold in other groups, the EDGE metric may be useful for prioritizing biodiversity for conservation...
- Where the rare species areArne O Mooers
Biological Sciences, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada
Mol Ecol 18:3955-7. 2009..In this issue, Rosauer et al. (2009) do just that; their elegant combined metric pinpoints areas missed out when the two types of rarity are looked at in isolation...
