Cuban Flowers

Cuban Flowers and plant diversity and endemism have incredibly high rates in the Caribbean islands, Cuba is home to over 6500 vascular plants, about half of which are endemic; further, as the largest island, Cuba accounts for around 48% of the hotspot’s land area, which also allows it to house half of the Caribbean’s endemic plants. Cuba’s conservation and preservation efforts remain of the utmost importance, now, as 950 plant species in Cuba are endangered, rare, or have become extinct over the course of the past 350 years.
