At the moment Conservation International formally recognizes 34 biodiversity hotspot areas on earth. 80 terms. CEPF is an alliance of leading conservation donors that provides grants to nonprofit and private-sector organizations that are working to protect the biodiversity hotspots and improve human well-being. Conservation International Hotspot Data. In order to qualify as a biodiversity hotspot, according to Conservation International, “a region must contain at least 1,500 species of vascular plants (>0.5% of the world’s total) as endemics, and it has to have lost at least 70% of its original habitat.” Today, 34 hotspots have been identified around the world. The hotspots of biodiversity identified by Conservation International aim to draw a picture of the richest and the most threatened reservoirs of plant and animal life on earth. Active 6 years, 2 months ago. Collectively these areas hold over 50% of all known plant species, yet cover only 2.3% of the Earth's land surface. But you’d be hard-pressed to find another 2.4% of the planet that’s more important. Conservation in the hotspots promotes sustainable management of these essential natural resources and supports economic growth, which also reduces drivers of violent conflict. These hotspots include 49955 endemic species which account for about 20% of world’s total plant species, Mittermeir and Werner (1990) on the basis of species richness put forth the concept of mega diversity centres. Many of these are heavily threatened by habitat loss and other human activities. We all depend on them. For nearly two decades thereafter, hotspots were the blueprint for our work. But species aren’t evenly distributed around the planet. But as the list of CIs dubious ventures and questionable partners around the world grows, Aziz Choudry is starting to wonder if it is time to out this multinational conservation corporation and show its true colours. Conservation International has since adopted the concept as the base of its conservation management strategy. In 1989, just one year after scientist Norman Myers wrote the paper that introduced the hotspots concept, Conservation International adopted the idea of protecting these incredible places as the guiding principle of our investments.

Or Translate the English site to your language: Translations of select content are available in French and Japanese on abridged versions of the CEPF website. A biodiversity hotspot is a biogeographic region that is both a significant reservoir of biodiversity and is threatened with destruction. To be more specific, it denotes the total species present in a specific ecosystem. Though the area covered by the hotspots represent only two per cent of the world’s land area, it preserves about 50% of the total terrestrial biodiversity. The list of the 35 biodiversity hotspots was put together by scientists for the non-profit-organization Conservation International (CI). In this article, an explanation of what the map reveals and how it can be used to develop a global conservation strategy is presented. This map shows areas of key importance in the battle to save the planet's diversity of life. Evidence from the war‐torn Eastern Afromontane hotspot suggests that biodiversity conservation is improved when international nongovernmental organizations support local protected area staff and remain engaged throughout the conflict. Hotspots are often defined according to their plant vegetation. The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) provides grants to civil society – NGOs, communities, indigenous groups, private sector and academic institutions – to protect biodiversity, build conservation leadership and nurture sustainable development. The idea of funneling resources into biodiversity hotspots was proposed in 1988 and quickly adopted by Conservation International and other leading environmental groups. Since 1987 Conservation International (CI) has built a compelling scientific case that protecting specific biodiversity hotspots will preserve a significant percentage of the Earth’s variety of life. Border Ranges North and South (Queensland and New South Wales) 4. These forests have all lost 90 per cent or more of their original habitat and each harbour at least 1500 endemic plant species (species found nowhere else in the world).

The authors agree that promoting biodiversity hotspots, as a “silver bullet” strategy for conserving the most species for the least cost is a risk in complex areas of international policy, such as biodiversity conservation, because decision makers may view it as a cure-all. 61 terms.

For the 25 Myers hotspots , we selected the most closely matching areas from the publicly available Geographic Information System (GIS) layer of the 34 Conservation International hotspots from Hotspots Revisited (available at www.conservation.org). It is, therefore, crucial that international support be provided to conservation efforts. Hotspots, which have played a central role in the selection of sites for reserves, require careful rethinking. Several nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and funding agencies prioritize investments in hotspots, such as the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund, a joint mechanism sponsored by Conservation International, l'Agence Française de Développement, the Global Environment Facility, the Government of Japan, the World Bank, and the MacArthur Foundation. The Japan Biodiversity Hotspot Japan is one of the 34 global biodiversity hotspots, as identified by Conservation International. This mismatch is small in temperate hotspots, however, suggesting that many threatened endemic species in the poorly known tropical hotspots have yet to be included on the IUCN Red Lists.

Three years later an extensive global review was undertaken, which introduced quantitative thresholds for the designation of biodiversity hotspots. Spanning most of central America, the Mesoamerica biodiversity hotspot encompasses all subtropical and tropical ecosystems from central Mexico to the Panama Canal. In 2000, a fund was set up to safeguard the 29 hotspots situated in developing and transitional countries.

For example, the Forests of East Australia are the latest hotspot to have been added after research showed that the area fulfilled all criteria. Hotspots. This method was proposed by a group of scientists led by Normal Myers. It was founded in 1987. Conservation International, one of CEPF's global donor organizations, adopted Myers’ hotspots as its institutional blueprint in 1989. Biodiversity conservation is at the top of CIs list of goals. These areas are the biodiversity hotspots, 36 regions where success in conserving species can have an enormous impact in securing our global biodiversity. Protecting important biodiversity hotspots IUCN (the International Union for Conservation of Nature) and the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) are undertaking a five-year investment for conservation of globally important biodiversity in the Indo-Burma Hotspot.

In 1998, Conservation International (CI) presented a strategy to focus conservation efforts in areas where they will have the greatest impact. Hotspots are characterised by richness in floral and faunal wealth. In this case, conservation of such areas is critical as they provide habitats to some species that are of benefit to human beings. Myers, Conservation International, and collaborators later revised estimates of remaining primary habitat and defined the hotspots formally as biogeographic regions with > 1500 endemic vascular plant species and ≤ 30 % of original primary habitat (Myers et al., 2000). Conservation International has identified 34 biodiversity hotspots. Conservation International was a pioneer in defining and promoting the concept of hotspots.

BIODIVERSITY, in general terms, comprises the variability of all life forms present on the Earth including all the fauna and flora species present on the planet. The method that has been most widely applied – and is currently being used by organizations like Conservation International (Conservation International 2007) – defines hotspots based on the concentration of endemic species in a region and the level of threat faced by the region (Myers 2000).
