Abstract: Targeting phylogenetic diversity (PD) in systematic conservation planning is an efficient way to minimize losses across the Tree of Life. Considering representation of genetic diversity belowand above species level, also allows robust analyses within systems where taxonomy is in flux.We use dense sampling of phylogeographic diversity for 11 lizard genera, to demonstrate howPD can be applied to a policy-ready conservation planning problem. Our analysis bypasses named taxa, using genetic data directly to informconservation decisions.We highlight areas that should be prioritized for ecological management, and also areas that would provide the greatest benefit if added to the multisector conservation estate. We provide a rigorous and effective approach to represent the spectrum of genetic and species diversity in conservation planning.
