CHAPTER 3 Why is Biodiversity Important? Why Is It Threatened? An Exploration with the IUCN ‘‘Red List’’ of Threatened Species James P. Gibbs Although species extinctions are part of the evolutionary process, current extinction rates are much greater than at any time in the last several million years.

Once you have become familiar with issues of conservation of genetic variation at the population level, can you identify any conservation issues in your local area that might benefit from a consideration of this perspective? For example, are any re-introductions of extirpated species being undertaken? Similarly, are game or fish populations being stocked or re-stocked in your area? Where are the individuals being used for these purposes originating? Has anyone considered the implications of the origins of the stocks used, or the consequences of mixing imported stocks with local stocks?

This will extract the total species recognized anywhere on the globe by the IUCN in relation to the type of threat. Record these totals, as you did for your country, but this time for the entire globe. Convert the numbers in each threat class to a fraction of the total species across all threat classes in your country. Do the same for the global species tallies.
