Abstract Biodiversity loss due to human activities has dramatically increased in the last decades, and attempts to protect threatened species should be accelerated. An important contribution towards this goal is to identify areas rich in biodiversity and endemism, where conservation will be most efficacious. Here, we follow this strategy for Iran, which includes large parts of the Irano-Anatolian global biodiversity hotspot, to assess the extent of conservation gaps. Based on nearly 25,000… CONTINUE READING
