    Description

    Why is a chapter on widespread species appearing in a volume on rare species? One answer to that is another question: Why focus on species in the first place? Granted, species do have a unique status. They are more or less closed units genetically, and species extinction signals the end of an evolutionary lineage that may have begun millions of years ago. By contrast. individuals and populations within species are lost and replaced all the time.
