Connecting consumers with conservation

Global hotspots of species threat linked to consumption in the United States. Darker areas indicate areas of threat hotspots driven by US consumption, based on the mix of threats exerted in each country and the mix of export goods sent to the United States for final consumption. Terrestrial and marine species colour bars are on log scales showing units of total species-equivalents, which is the sum over all the fraction of species threats allocated to this consumer country. <br /> © Nature Publishing Group | Nature Ecology & Evolution | Daniel Moran and Keiichiro Kanemoto
