    About This Project

    Biodiversity is not evenly distributed on the planet, but is concentrated in hotspots, with high conservation value. Identifying such areas is biased against areas with difficult access, such as the high mountains of Morocco. Our preliminary assessments indicate that there are many new species that need describing, but to do this involves extensive fieldwork to collect photographic and genetic data. Only with this information can new species be described and conservation status determined.
