Description:
In "The""Kingdom of Rarities," scientist Eric Dinerstein poses an intriguing question: What if the way we categorized the living world was reshuffled for a moment, from a system designed to inform us about evolutionary relationships among species to one with two camps based on abundance: the Kingdom of Common species and the Kingdom of Rarities? What new observations and connections would emerge?"
The Kingdom of Rarities" explores that idea, building a narrative around the concept of rarity and its implications both for our understanding of how the natural world works, and for what it can teach us about protecting biodiversity during a time of large-scale environmental change.
Dinerstein highlights cutting-edge science from remote outposts around the world, focusing on some of the key questions that scientists are asking themselves right now:
what are the rarest species?
why are rare species most likely to be found in certain types of environments?
which species have always been rare, and which have only recently been made rare?
which species or places are most in need of saving? <br
