Phylogenetic diversity meets conservation policy: small areas are key to preserving eucalypt lineages

Pollock, L. J.; Rosauer, D. F.; Thornhill, A. H.; Kujala, H.; Crisp, M. D.; Miller, J. T.; McCarthy, M. A.


Evolutionary and genetic knowledge is increasingly being valued in conservation theory, but is rarely considered in conservation planning and policy. Here, we integrate phylogenetic diversity (PD) with spatial reserve prioritization to evaluate how well the existing reserve system in Victoria, Australia captures the evolutionary lineages of eucalypts, which dominate forest canopies across the state. Forty-three per cent of remaining native woody vegetation in Victoria is located in protected...[Show more]
