  "description": "<p>This map displays the global <a href=\"https://zenodo.org/record/3261807#.X8_HgNhKg2x\">Biodiversity Hotspots 2016.1 dataset</a>. The colors assigned to the hotspots are only used to distinguish adjacent hotspots and have no other meaning. The biodiversity hotspots represent terrestrial biodiversity only. The offshore lines are a cartographic device to group and highlight islands that are part of the same hotspots (e.g. Polynesia-Micronesia, Indo-Burma).&nbsp;The background image is from Natural Earth. This version is without labels; a version with the hotspots labelled in English is available:&nbsp;10.5281/zenodo.4311850</p>\n\n<p>There are currently&nbsp;<a href=\"https://www.cepf.net/node/1996\">36 recognized biodiversity hotspots</a>. These are Earth&rsquo;s most biologically rich&mdash;yet threatened&mdash;terrestrial regions.</p>\n\n<p>To qualify as a biodiversity hotspot, an area must meet two strict criteria:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>Contain at least 1,500 species of vascular plants found nowhere else on Earth (known as &quot;endemic&quot; species).</li>\n\t<li>Have lost at least 70 percent of its primary&nbsp;native vegetation.</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>Many of the biodiversity hotspots exceed the two criteria. For example, both the Sundaland Hotspot in Southeast Asia and the Tropical Andes Hotspot in South America have about&nbsp;<strong>15,000</strong>&nbsp;endemic plant species. The loss of vegetation in some hotspots has reached a startling&nbsp;<strong>95</strong>&nbsp;percent.</p>",
