Cardillo, Marcel; Mace, Georgina M; Gittleman, John L; Jones, Kate E.; Bielby, Jon; Purvis, A.

Description

Extinction risk varies among species, and comparative analyses can help clarify the causes of this variation. Here we present a phylogenetic comparative analysis of species-level extinction risk across nearly the whole of the class Mammalia. Our aims were to examine systematically the degree to which general predictors of extinction risk can be identified, and to investigate the relative importance of different types of predictors (life history, ecological, human impact and environmental) in...[Show more]
