Biodiversity hotspots identify conservation priorities

...and their habitats," said Gustavo A.B. da Fonseca, executive vice president of CI. Two factors determine which areas qualify as hotspots: number of endemic species (those found nowhere else) and degree of threat. Plants are used as a measure of endemism, and each of the hotspots holds at least half a percent ...
