1 Biodiversity Hotspots

2 Biodiversity Hotspot: A biogeographic region characterized both by exceptional levels of plant endemism and by serious levels of habitat loss. - Norman Myers, 1988 A hotspot must contain at least 1,500 species of vascular plants as endemics, and it has to have lost at least 70 percent of its original habitat.

3 There are thought to be 34 or 35 hotspots - each with unique, endemic wildlife under threat from human activities. These sites support nearly 60% of the world s plant, bird, mammal, reptile, and amphibian species, with a very high share of endemic species.
