      This review and synthesis of the patterns and theories of biodiversity provides a firm scientific basis for the study and management of the Earth's biosphere. Beginning with a practical definition of biodiversity and an overview of diversity patterns on Earth, this book develops a conceptual framework that extends traditional theories of species diversity to explain both the general patterns.   Madagascar is one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet, the result of million years of isolation from the African mainland. More than 80% of its species are not found anywhere else on Earth. However, this highly diverse flora and fauna is threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation, and the island has been classified as one of the world’s highest conservation priorities.

      The book before you offers an overall view of this biological diversity and carries the urgent warning that we are rapidly altering and destroying the environments that have fostered the diversity of life forms for more than a billion years. The steppe areas are particularly rich in species diversity. All steppe areas are inhabited by numerous rodent species. It is distinguished from the Daurian forest steppe as that ecoregion which plays a unique role as an area of biological exchange for the flora and fauna of Siberia and middle Asia. In Mongolia, the ecoregion boundaries are.
