Plant and Animal Endemism in California

Susan Harrison


This book modernizes our understanding of why California is so rich in unique biological diversity. It brings together, for the first time, what recent evolutionary studies have revealed about the origins of the wealth of plants and animals found only in the California floristic province. It also reviews the innovative scientific and policy tools that have been developed for conserving this diversity.

Keywords: endemic, plant, animal, California, evolution, speciation, biodiversity, conservation
