Baseline biodiversity (optional)

Species richness, ecosystem characterization, endemic species and other metrics of native ecosystem

Data on biodiversity richness may not be available within ecosystem classification. Where it is available to a project it should be included.

However, the ISBM does not require full biodiversity classification, only clear identification of indicator species that both the Indigenous people and global scientists recognize as distinct indicator species.

Where possible projects must draw on publicly available sources to characterize species richness and endemic species for the following taxonomic groups: All identified species of trees, vascular plants, amphibians, reptiles, birds, insects, mammals, fish, and fungi.

A sample table for Putumayo, Colombia is provided in Appendix D.
