Hotspots (biodiversity)

The Hotspot (biodiversity) is a term used to describe an area that features exceptional concentrations of endemic species and faces an imminent threat of habitat destruction. There are identified around 18 -25 hotspots worldwide depending on the criteria used. Hotspot provides a means by which to focus on areas where threats to biodiversity are most extreme and where conservation efforts can be potentially effective. Forests and other habitats in these remaining biodiversity’s hotspot areas have been reduced to a small fraction of their levels, and most are at immediate risk of disappearing rainforest (deforestation)
