AbstractTo our knowledge, this is the first attempt to summarize the existing knowledge on the Pantepui biota, including most plant and animal groups studied to date. The available information on the biodiversity of Pantepui is dispersed in hundreds of books and articles, including gray literature, and a synthesis of the state of the art in this matter seemed pertinent. Knowing the extant biodiversity patterns and the potential environmental drivers and evolutionary mechanisms involved in their generation and maintenance is essential, not only for the progress of fundamental science but also for biodiversity conservation (Rull, 2019). Unfortunately, such knowledge is still very limited for Pantepui, and only a preliminary assessment can be offered due to incomplete exploration. However, it is hoped that this book will provide a basis to advance the ecological and evolutionary study of the unique Pantepui biota and will help set the basis for its conservation.
