Human aspects of biodiversity: an evolutionary perspective

, : Human aspects of biodiversity: an evolutionary perspective. Biodiversity and global change: 209-222

This paper focuses on the ways in which species have adapted and improved through natural selection and the potential loss of these improvements due to human intervention.
