DescriptionAn appropriate yardstick for a biodiversity program is how it affects the persistence of viable populations. A coordinated program of biodiversity research could be structured under three overlapping subject areas: (1) threatened, endangered, and sensitive species; (2) restoration of missing, underrepresented, or declining communities; and (3) general principles and procedures for ecosystem restoration and perpetuation.
