With over 2700 endemic plant taxa, including relict species, such as the near threatened Pinus eldarica, the Caucasus region is one of the world‘s most beautiful and important biodiversity hotspots. The Red List provides the first floristic and conservation analysis of the plants of the region, with assessments for over 60% of the endemic taxa, including top priorities for conservation action. ln addition to the list, profiles of the six countries are provided, detailing the range of climates, habitats, and vegetation and identifying important national plants and their threats. This work will serve as an integral tool for botanists, ecoIogists, and researchers worldwide, working to study and protect the biodiversity heritage of this important region.
