The papers on biodiversity in this issue focus on the richness of life in Nova Scotia, and the means by which this richness might be conserved. Mammals, birds, fish, beetles, and diatoms are examples of the richness of life described in the volume. The conservation status of selected species is outlined, as are the threats to these species. Special attention is paid to moose and roseate terns, and a wide range of birds, beetles, fish, mammals and other species receive some attention. Conservation options based on the protection of habitat in Nova Scotia, as well as comprehensive landscape-scale strategies for biodiversity conservation planning, are similarly described both in detail and in general by a variety of authors.
