Study Links Biodiversity and Language Loss
from BBC News Online
The decline of linguistic and cultural diversity is linked to the loss of biodiversity, a study has suggested. The authors said that 70% of the world's languages were found within the planet's biodiversity hotspots.

The results of the study have been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
