Editorials for Journal of Biodiversity & Endangered Species

Sudhanshu Panda
2013 Journal of Biodiversity & Endangered Species  
Therefore, I emphasize here that all of the researchers involved in environmental management, especially biodiversity management should get familiarize with this new-age technology.  ...  Biodiversity management and endangered species protection and revival are spatial issues. Most of the data used in such management decision makings are spatial in nature.  ...

Monitoring of Biological Diversity: a Common-Ground Approach

2007 Conservation Biology  
Practical approaches to monitoring biological diversity vary widely among countries, and the accumulating data are frequently not generalizable at the international scale.  ...  Although many present monitoring schemes, especially in developed countries, produce highly complex data, there is often a lack of basic data about the level and spatial distribution of biodiversity.  ...  Given the resources the primary monitoring activities may easily be extended to, for example, collection of more detailed density estimates and information on the age, stage, or sexual structure of populations  ...

Marine biodiversity in space and time: What tiny fossils tell

Moriaki Yasuhara
2018 Mètode Science Studies Journal: Annual Review  
We know much less regarding the biodiversity gradients with time. This is because it would require a well designed continuous monitoring program, which seldom persist beyond a few decades.  ...  For example, we have more species in the tropics and less species in the Arctic and Antarctic regions, constituting latitudinal diversity gradient, one of the patterns we can see most consistently in this  ...  Figure 6 . 6 Deep-sea biodiversity changes in the northeastern and northwestern Atlantic Ocean for the last 20,000 years.  ...
