Using published IUCN red-lists for the threatened bird species of Indonesia (Stattersfield & Capper, 2000), we document that the species at risk in Indonesia are not a taxonomically random sample, consistent with patterns seen at the global scale (Purvis et al., 2000). This implies that a greater than random proportion of Indonesia's and the world's (through the loss of endemics) phylogenetic diversity (PD) is at risk (Von Euler, 2001). Using cytochrome b (Johns & Avise, 1998) and a distance-based taxonomy, …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
