This chapter discusses how personality and behavioral diversity are important determinants of genetic diversity and the long-term persistence of populations, and also describes the anthropogenic factors influencing behavioral diversity in the wild and in captivity. This is followed by a discussion on the role of personality research in identifying potential threats such as exotic and invasive species. The chapter concludes with recommendations for understanding managing behavioral diversity.
