Conservation Systematics of the western Pilbara fauna
Genetic approaches to biodiversity conservation are now well established and contribute greatly to understanding biological diversity at all levels, from genes, populations and species to ecosystems. These approaches are increasingly complementary to traditional morphological research into species identities and determining taxa that are undescribed, cryptic or have restricted geographic ranges, and may be in need of active conservation initiatives. All of these areas are applied, management-focused criteria that underpin biodiversity conservation.
