From the reviews:
"This book is a tour de force of scholarship that engages an astonishing number of perspectives and aggressively challenges a deeply and widely held assumption in our thinking about nature's value. ... it is meticulously organized and serves as a rich resource for all things biodiversity." (David E. Storey, Environmental Philosophy, Vol. 10 (1), 2013)
"In What's So Good about Biodiversity, Maier, an environmentalist and moral philosopher, redefines the argument for the value of nature beyond the current biodiversity justification. ... it is more appropriate for an environmental ethics course for advanced students. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers/faculty." (K. R. Thompson, Choice, Vol. 50 (4), December, 2012)"The book entitled `What's So Good About Biodiversity' written by D.S. Maier presents deep intellectual reasoning about nature's value. ... The text is well written and Maier uses technical terms only when they are truly unavoidable. ... this book is read not only by philosophers, but also by environmentalists and biologists." (Christian Wilhelm, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 169 (15), 2012)
