Summary This book brings together a selection of original studies submitted to "Biodiversity and Conservation" that address biodiversity and conservation in Europe. Europe is certainly the most intensively inventoried region of the world; detailed maps are available for species distributions while action plans are being drawn up for species under threat. At the same time, the wildlife of Europe has been subject to enormous human pressures, with limited 'wilderness' sites remaining in most countries. Europe consequently presents a case-study of what the human impact on biodiversity has been.
