Phylogeny is a potentially powerful tool for conserving biodiversity. This book explores how it can be used to tackle questions of great practical importance and urgency for conservation. Using case studies from many different taxa and regions of the world, the volume evaluates how useful phylogeny is in understanding the processes that have generated today's diversity and the processes that now threaten it. The novelty of many of the applications, the increasing ease with which phylogenies can be generated, the urgency with which conservation decisions have to be made and the need to make decisions that are as good as possible together make this volume a timely and important synthesis which will be of great value to researchers, practitioners and policy-makers alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Conservation books rarely display such optimism.' Biologist
'... a judicious volume that combines the original work and reviews of a wide range of experts into four main sections, within and across which chapters are well edited to interconnect, with cohesively styled and clear graphics. ...This book is an excellent example of how diligent editors can pull together a controversial part of a field, particularly if backed by institutions with sufficient clout and resources to attract top participants. With its timely contributions, this volume will be valuable as supplementary reading for any course in conservation genetics, and will be particularly useful to advanced graduate students.' Oryx
