Conservationists are far from able to protect all species under threat for lack of available resources and funding. This places a premium on setting priorities. Global 200 , posed by the World Wildlife Fund , one of the approaches to setting large- scale biodiversity conservation priorities , frames a list of ecoregions to establish global conservation priorities. In this paper , we introduced method , and then evaluated limitations of the Global 200 , emphasized the ecoregions in China involved in the Global 200 , and compared their coincidence to current critical regions in China.
