Biotic Homogenization and Conservation Prioritization
Quantitative studies of biotic homogenization can provide useful insights into conservation problems when used appropriately, but can be dangerously misleading when they are not. By separating the concept of biotic homogenization at the global scale from the study of biotic homogenization at spatially- and temporally-explicit scales, researchers can avoid many of the subtle pitfalls inherent in homogenization studies.
