A dictionary definition of the word integrative is ‘combining and coordinating diverse elements into a whole’. Integrative Conservation therefore aims to combine and coordinatethe diverse elements of biological conservation into an effective tool for protecting species and ecosystems. These elements include traditional ecological field studies, biogeography and systematics, remote sensing, molecular genetics and metagenomics, mathematical modelling, and environmental education.
