Summary Introduction

To review:

The criteria used by conservation biologists to recognize the sites where extinctions are significant.


Conservation biology is the that which deals with the protection of species, ecosystems, and habitats of the species that forms the part of biodiversity. Researchers who study conservation biology are considered as conservation biologists. They provide critical feedbacks upon the status of various organisms in the ecosystem and approach to provide solution in order to protect the earth as a whole.


Norman Myer from United States pointed out 25 biodiversity hotspots in the year 2000, or the regions of the species richness that are vulnerable to human encroachment. He specified certain criteria to describe a region as a biodiversity hotspot. There are many researchers from United States, Australia, and United Kingdom that collaborated to point out the imminent sites based on Myer’s studies where extinctions took place...
