BIODIVERSITY & WORLDMAP 

1 MEASURING BIODIVERSITY VALUE 
           1.1 Best estimates: using genealogy to predict genetic or character richness 
  1.2 Popular estimates: using species richness 
  1.3 Practical estimates: using higher taxa or environmental variables as surrogates 
  1.4 Relationship among estimates: a scale of surrogacy for mapping more of biodiversity value at lower cost 

2 MEASURING RARITY & ENDEMISM 
  2.1 Discontinuous measures: using thresholds to include only the rarest species 
  2.2 Continuous measures: weighting by range size 

3 ASSESSING CONSERVATION PRIORITY & GAP ANALYSIS 
  3.1 Area-selection methods 
  3.2 A sequential approach to viability and threat 
 

3.3 Resolving conflicts

3.4 Applications: CI priority setting workshop
