The name ‘Eastern Arc Mountains’, describing a chain of mountains starting in southern Kenya and progressing through eastern Tanzania, first appeared in print in 1985. In subsequent years, biological data on the importance of the Eastern Arc Mountains have been increasingly refined and summarized. These and other data have been used in several global analyses of biodiversity priority to show that the Eastern Arc Mountains rank among the most important areas of the world for the conservation of endemic birds, endemic plants, and a combined set of taxonomic groups. The Eastern Arc is also home to four endemic or near-endemic species of primates and most of the known species of African violet – Saintpaulia spp. Attempts to factor threat into assessments of conservation priority across the world and across Africa have also shown that the Eastern Arc is amongst the most threatened regions of global biodiversity significance and one where the extinction risk to the fauna and flora is intense, and increasing.
