A species found only in a particular area is known as an endemic species.
Endemic species are unique to a specific geographic location and are not found naturally anywhere else in the world.
These species often evolve in isolation, adapting to the specific environmental conditions of their limited range. They are of significant ecological and conservation importance because their restricted distribution makes them more vulnerable to habitat loss, environmental changes, and other threats.
Preserving and protecting endemic species is crucial for maintaining biodiversity and the overall health of ecosystems.
