    Proc Biol Sci 281:20141644. 2014
    ..Spatial resource prioritization to conserve biodiversity may not benefit threatened languages, and conservation policy must adopt a multi-faceted approach to protect biocultural diversity as a whole. ..

    Samuel T Turvey
    Institute of Zoology, Zoological Society of London, Regent s Park, London, United Kingdom

    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 366:2564-76. 2011

    Institute of Zoology, Zoological Society of London, Regent s Park, London, UK
    Conserv Biol 24:778-87. 2010

    School of Biological Sciences, University of Canterbury, PB 4800 Christchurch, New Zealand
    J Morphol 265:70-86. 2005
