Conservation International Abstract

The Mesoamerican forests are the third largest among the world’s hotspots. Their spectacular endemic species include quetzals, howler monkeys, and 17,000 plant species. The region is also a corridor for many Neotropical migrant bird species. The hotspot’s montane forests are important for amphibians, many endemic species of which are in dramatic decline due to an interaction between habitat loss, fungal disease and climate change.
