About this book

This new book presents the results of a four year re-analysis of the biodiversity hotspots, which originally appeared in the original Hotspots book in 1999, and provides updated information, and refines and reconfigures the hotspots boundaries. Hotspots Revisited identifies 34 regions worldwide, increased from the original 25 in the 1999 study, where 75 percent of the planet's most threatened mammals, birds, and amphibians survive within habitat covering just 2.3% of the Earth's surface. Like its predecessor it is richly illustrated with over 300 photographs by some of the world's most outstanding wildlife photographers and has contributions from more than 200 scientific experts from around the world. New to the updated book is the inclusion of information on freshwater fishes for all hotspots, data on the number of genera and families occurring in and endemic to the hotspots, threats to hotspots and data for Critically Endangered and Endangered terrestrial vertebrates according to the IUCN's Red List of Threatened Species. Hotspots Revisited provides stronger evidence than ever before of the fundamental role that the hotspots play in global biodiversity conservation and reaffirms the importance of the biodiversity hotspots concept.

Media reviews

Its elegant and informative text wraps around absolutely superb pictures of the world's rarest and most beautiful animals and plants. Do your soul and conservation a favor - buy it. - Adrian Barnett, New Scientist "Acting as both a magnificent encyclopedia of the 25 hotspots and as a plea for their salvation, the book succeeds wonderfully at both missions and is highly recommended." - Booklist"
