Abstract

[Spanish] Ecuador es uno de los diecisiete países 'megadiversos' del mundo (Mittermeier et al., 1997), con 0,2% de la superficie terrestre, el país tiene 18% de las aves, 18% de las orquídeas, casi 10% de los anfibios y 8% de los mamíferos existentes en el planeta. Es posible que Ecuador tenga más biodiversidad por área que cualquier otro país en el mundo (MAE, 2005). Casi todo Ecuador, hace parte de dos hotspots: Túmbez-Chocó-Magdalena y Andes Tropicales. Los hotspots son áreas terrestres muy ricas en biodiversidad, con alto endemismo y que se encuentran extremadamente amenazadas.

[English] Ecuador is one of the seventeen 'megadiverse' countries of the world (Mittermeier et al., 1997), with 0.2% of the land surface, the country has 18% of birds, 18% of orchids, almost 10% of amphibians and 8% of mammals on the planet. Ecuador may have more biodiversity per area than any other country in the world (MAE, 2005). Almost all of Ecuador is part of two hotspots: Túmbez-Chocó-Magdalena and Tropical Andes. The hotspots are terrestrial areas very rich in biodiversity, with high endemism and that are extremely threatened.
