      The British ecologist Norman Myers first published the biodiversity hotspot thesis in Myers, although without quantitative criteria but relying solely on the high levels of habitat loss and the presence of an extraordinary number of plant endemism, identified ten tropical forest “hotspots” (Mittermeier et al., ).A subsequent analysis (Myers, ) added a further eight hotspots Cited by: Qian, H., Floristic relationships between eastern Asia and North America: Test of Gray’s hypothesis, The American Naturalist (3) , pp. – Return to text.

Botanist Ronald Good () identified six floristic kingdoms (Boreal or Holarctic, Neotropical, Paleotropical, South African, Australian, and Antarctic), the largest natural units he determined for flowering 's six kingdoms are subdivided into smaller units, called regions and provinces.

The Paleotropical kingdom is divided into three subkingdoms, which are each subdivided into.
