Abstract

Highly specialized ecosystems of islands and archipelagos are among the earth’s treasures most valuable to science, to tourism economies, to recreation, education, and inspiration. The establishment of national parks in New Zealand, the Hawaiian Islands, and the Galápagos Archipelago have produced attractive revenue from tourism, but these places are literally part of a universal heritage, and they deserve the utmost care and preservation by governmental bodies.
