The following table is a sample of a very large body of data reported by J. P. Collins, M. L. Crump, and T. E. Lovejoy HI in their book Extinction in Our Times–Global Amphibian Decline . It compares various areas of the world in terms of the number of amphibian species found and the number of amphibian species that were endemic, or unique to each area. Scientists like to know these percentages because endemic species tend to be more vulnerable to extinction than do non-endemic species. Study the table below and then answer the following questions. Fill in the fourth column to calculate the percentage of amphibian species that are endemic to each area.
