      About The Book

      Polynesia, the mountains of south-central China, the coastal forest of Tanzania, New Zealand — all are breathtakingly beautiful sites with a crucial fact in common. They are four of the Earth’s twenty-five “hotspots,” geographical areas which, according to scientists and naturalists, are home to the world’s greatest plant and animal diversity. The numbers are staggering: fully sixty percent of all terrestrial animal and plant species are found in these hotspots, which are themselves only 1.4 percent of the Earth’s surface; they contain 54 percent of amphibian species and nearly half of all the plant species on Earth. They are the richest and most threatened reservoirs of plant and animal life on Earth. “Hotspots” is the definitive compilation and status report on these twenty-five areas. Russell Mittermeier, Cristine Mittermeier and Norman Myers, who pioneered the “hotspots” concept, take you through each of these regions, describing the various ecosystems and the threats to their existence. They have gathered the work of more than one hundred international experts on plant and animal life together with hundreds of spectacular color photographs, essentially creating a tour of the magnificent array of life found in each region. How we address and reverse the tide of destruction in coming decades will determine the planet’s course for centuries to come, and “Hotspots” actually offers hope that this destruction can be slowed. By showcasing the specific areas that contain the greatest diversity, it demonstrates that we can conserve a major share of this terrestrial biodiversity by focusing efforts on relatively small geographical areas. “Hotspots” is not only an important work forconservationists; it is also an extraordinary view of life on Earth. “”Hotspots” represents a breakthrough in the way we regard life on Earth and should be required reading for government decision-makers, corporate leaders, and college students alike.” — From the Foreword by Harrison Ford
