Identified as a Identified by Conservation International
 as one of 25 most biologically rich and endangered
 ecosystems in the world. These “hotspots” have been
 assessed using three criteria: the number of species
 present in the area, the number of those species found
 exclusively in and ecosystem, and the degree of threat they face. Armenia - home to a rich ancient culture - is a mountainous, arid developing country with a wide range of microclimates producing a diverse and distinctive flora and fauna. In fact, the relatively small (29,740 km2) country of Armenia is home to nearly all the types of plants and animals present in the entire southern Caucasus area. The Caucasus region has several bird species and subspecies endemic to the region and Armenia is home to regionally endemic, rare and relict species of plants.
