9780520275546: Plant and Animal Endemism in California

California is globally renowned for its biological diversity, including its wealth of unique, or endemic, species. Many reasons have been cited to explain this abundance: the complex geology and topography of its landscape, the special powers of its Mediterranean-type climate, and the historic and modern barriers to the wider dispersal of its flora and fauna. Plant and Animal Endemism in California compiles and synthesizes a wealth of data on this singular subject, providing new and updated lists of native species, comparing patterns and causes of both plant and animal endemism, and interrogating the classic explanations proposed for the state’s special significance in light of new molecular evidence. Susan Harrison also offers a summary of the innovative tools that have been developed and used in California to conserve and protect this stunning and imperiled diversity.

From the Inside Flap:

"In this splendid book, Susan Harrison not only describes the remarkable diversity of unique plants and animals found throughout California, but she also explores how that uniqueness has developed over millions of years. Packed with novel insights gained from decades of extensive field research, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding and conserving the biodiversity of California. You will come away with a fresh perspective on why these ecosystems are so special."

—John N. Thompson, Distinguished Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Santa Cruz

"Although California is well known as a global hotspot of endemism and biodiversity, surprisingly there has been no single comprehensive overview of its plants and animals—until now. Susan Harrison has filled this gap with a welcome synthesis that nicely addresses the nexus between endemism, biological diversity, and the conservation challenges inherent in preserving this unique flora and fauna in an era of global environmental change."

—Phil Rundel, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, UCLA
