  Hi,

just a brief question:

what's real biodiversity research?

and a comment,

>How does this kind of research get priority over real biodiversity research?

I've noticed that funding agencies tend to favor hypothesis-driven
research and to avoid funding long-term inventory work with no clear
outcome but "a list" of what's there and some new species... don't know
just my perception perhaps. But I might be missunderstanding what "real
biodiversity research" is anyways.
