Use the A to Z to find out about different areas of biodiversity importance. These include internationally recognised protected areas such as World Heritage Sites and Ramsar Sites, as well as the many approaches used to prioritise areas for conservation effort and protection including Biodiversity hotspots and Key Biodiversity Areas.

While the many and varied terms used to capture these important biodiversity areas are there to fulfil many purposes, this has created a confusing conservation landscape to navigate. The A to Z is designed to provide clear, concise and relevant information about each type of area, which can be used by all sectors including business, government and environmental agencies.
