2004). The PD measure is now recognized as a basis for setting conservation priorities among species or areas (Faith 1992a; Forest et al. 2007; Mace 2003). Bordewich and Semple (2012) state that “phylogenetic diversity (PD) has emerged as a leading measure in quantifying the biodiversity of a collection of species”. Davies and Buckley (2011) conclude that “The loss of PD, quantified in millions of years, provides a resonant symbol of the current biodiversity crisis”. g. Isambert et al. 2011). In fact, PD complementarity and endemism are critical to such planning (Faith 1992a; Faith et al.

This is probably the case with many forests of Amazonia as yet unstudied. There are still geoglyphs, for example, covered in forest (Pärssinen et al. 2009), though perhaps not for long, given the velocity of habitat fragmentation in eastern Acre and environs. Historical ecology therefore admits of varying timelines in the total explication of diversity, but the one indispensable feature is human activity. That is because human activity accounts for the distribution patterns observed in the present at the 30 W.
