Dedicated to the memory of Suzanne Szentandrasi

Welcome to the biodiversity bibliography. We have found it useful to collect these references for our own work and we are glad to share our efforts with others. This bibliography contains approximately 4000 references on various aspects of biodiversity and conservation. No pretense is made of complete coverage of all the relevant literature. Certain areas that closely match our interests are well covered (e.g., various aspects of economics, reserve site selection) while other topics are not.

The bibliography uses Procite bibliographic software, which allows web-users to conduct searches using a general word search in all indexed fields (such as author and year) on the initial search page. Users can also search all non-indexed fields (such as title and abstracts) using the advanced search feature. Recent articles have abstracts included. Many older articles do not. All articles either have abstracts or are keyed to a set of categories, which can be accessed using keywords. A list of these keywords is given below. If you would like a pdf file containing all the articles within a keyword category, please select the links below.

We welcome your input and suggestions. If you have references you would like us to add, suggestions or question, please send them to Daniel Kramer ( It would be most helpful when sending references to send them in one of the following formats: a Procite format; MEDLARS; or RIS (Research Informations System).
