Abstract

For most organisms, the number of described species considerably

secondary complications given present high rates of species extinction.

“hotspots”—places where high levels of endemism and

would conservation priorities be if the catalog were complete? Approximately

They are almost certainly rare, and depending on where

climate disruption. By using a model that incorporates taxonomic

species are already conservation priorities. Our results

considerably higher levels of species imperilment than previously

acknowledged.
