Signed by author Russ Mittermeier, this is the fourth volume in a series produced by Conservation International in collaboration with CEMEX, the Mexican NGO Agrupacion Sierra Madre, and the University of Virginia. Like its three predecessors, Megadiversity (1997), Hotspots (1999), and Wilderness (2002), 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. 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 percent of the Earth’s surface. 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. Authors Russell A. Mittermeier, Patricio Robles Gil, Michael Hoffman, John Pilgrim, Thomas Brooks, Cristina Goettsch Mittermeier, John Lamoreux, and Gustavo A.B. da Fonseca. Preface by Peter A. Seligmann. Foreword by Harrison Ford.
