Incorporating spatial population structure in gap analysis reveals inequitable assessments of species protection

SANTINI L., DI MARCO M., BOITANI L., MAIORANO L., RONDININI C. Diversity & Distribution DOI: 10.1111/ddi.12198 Gap analysis measures the percentage of protected species distribution and generally compares it to a representation target (i.e. minimum area to be protected).
