Conservation and the emergency ward by Edward O. Wilson

"Because extinction is forever, rare species are the focus of conservation biology.
Scientists in this young scientific discipline conduct their studies with the
same sense of immediacy as doctors in an emergency ward.
They look for quick diagnosis and procedures that can
prolong the life of species until more
leisurely remedial work is possible"

Edward O. Wilson
