Phylogenetically informed spatial planning is required to conserve the mammalian tree of life

Rosauer, Dan; Pollock, Laura J.; Linke, Simon; Jetz, Walter

Description

In the face of the current extinction crisis and severely limited conservation resources, safeguarding the tree of life is increasingly recognized as a high priority. We conducted a first systematic global assessment of the conservation of phylogenetic diversity (PD) that uses realistic area targets and highlights the key areas for conservation of the mammalian tree of life. Our approach offers a substantially more effective conservation solution than one focused on species. In many locations,...[Show more]
