Oceanic islands offer biologists unparalleled opportunities to study evolutionary processes and ecological phenomena. However, human activity threatens to alter or destroy many of these fragile ecosystems, with recent estimates suggesting that nearly half of the world's insular endemics are threatened with extinction.

Bringing together researchers from around the world, this book illustrates. Conservation biology is the management of nature and of Earth's biodiversity with the aim of protecting species, their habitats, and ecosystems from excessive rates of extinction and the erosion of biotic interactions.

It is an interdisciplinary subject drawing on natural and social sciences, and the practice of natural resource management.: The conservation ethic is based on the findings.
