The first route is more reactive and involves the detection, through surveillance monitoring, of a change in status of a taxon, species group, habitat or ecosystem. Conservation Biology for All provides cutting-edge but basic conservation science to a global readership. A series of authoritative chapters have been written by the top names in conservation biology with the principal aim of disseminating cutting-edge conservation knowledge as widely as possible.
