From the reviews: "A 'hotspot' here signifies an area with high levels of biodiversity, endemism, and habitat loss. ... these are regions of great concern to conservation biologists and the focus of this important volume, which stems from a conference held in Luxembourg in 2009. The book includes 26 chapters by 81 contributors. ... Figure quality, including many color maps and images, is excellent. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals in conservation biology." (E. J. Sargis, Choice, Vol. 49 (8), April, 2012)
