About this book

Polynesia, the mountains of south-central China, the coastal forests of Tanzania, New Zealand - all are stunning sites with a crucial fact in common. They are 4 of the Earth's 25 `hotspots' - geographical areas which are home to the world's greatest plant and animal diversity. 60% of all terrestial animal and plant species are found here, and 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 25 areas. The authors describe each region, their various ecosystems and the threats to their existence. They have gathered the work of more than 100 international experts on plant and animal life together with hundreds of stunning colour photographs to produce a tour of the magnificent array of life found in each region.
The hotspots are: Tropical Andes; Mediteranean Basin; Madagascar/Indian Ocean Islands; Mesoamerica; Caribbean Islands; Indo-Burma; Atlantic Forest of Brazil; Philippines; Cape Floristic Region of South Africa; Mountains of South Central China; Sundaland; Brazilian Cerrado; Southwest Australia; Polynesia and Micronesia; New Caledonia; Choco/Darien/Western Ecuador; Western Ghats & Sri Lanka; California Floristic Province; Succulent Karoo; New Zealand; Central Chile; Guinean Forests of West Africa; Caucasus; Eastern Arc Mountains, Coastal Forests of Kenya and Tanzania; and Wallacea.
