Abstract

The AA. use GIS technology to overlay a map of ecological regions with a map of protected areas in order to identify biomes and geographic realms that are under-represented and well represented by protected areas. The results confirm an overemphasis on marginal land and dramatic landscapes, and the relative neglect of biomes with strong, alternative economic uses. Industrialized lifestyles and population pressure also appear to act as stimuli to protection
