In many cases tourism is one of the contributing causes of reef deterioration (WCMC 1992, p. ). , Russia) and in the continental tropics (South America, Fig. 6. Global distribution of coral reefs. Source: UNEP 1995, p. 382, altered. 3 Coastal Ecosystems 29 Africa), predominantly in the interior.

Assessments must therefore be limited to rough typifications. In general it is assumed that the following habitats are particularly severely endangered: - freshwater ecosystems coastal ecosystems wetlands coral reefs ocean islands rain forests in temperate zones steppes in temperate zones - tropical dry forests - tropical rain forests - mountain ecosystems (GLOWKA et al. 1994, p. 41; BMU 1993, p. 101) Of greatest significance by far for global biodiversity are the tropical rain forests. Their global distribution is shown in Fig.
