Abstract

Nature conservation can be considered a social movement that proposes itself to develop or reaffirm in the society some values concerning the relationship between man and nature. Conservation biology is driven by the same motivations but is distinguished from the nature conservation movement; it is a scientific discipline the aim of which is to supply a knowledge support for the decisions in the field of the biodiversity conservation management. In fact, one of the fundamental aspects in approaching the safeguarding plans is to identify the characteristics for which an area has to be object of a conservation program [2]. Nowadays biogeography stands out as a discipline of central importance for the conservation planning. They use the term ‘conservation biogeography’ to indicate the application of biogeography principles, theories and analyses on taxa distribution to biodiversity defense problems. Present work concerns the development of a knowledge based system for the endemic species distribution pattern identification.
