Find the wrongly matched pair.

A

Alien species- Clarias gariepinus

B

Hot spots- Regions with species richness

C

Endemism species- Confined to one region and also found in other regions

D

Lungs of the planet- Amazon rain forest

Answer

Endemic means a species which is native to a place and is not found anywhere else in the world. Endemic basically means indigenous. The more endemic species at a place more is the biodiversity of that place. For example, the Nilgiri tahr also known as Nilgiri Ibex is endemic to the Nilgiri Hills and some part of Western Ghats of Kerala.
So, the correct answer is 'Endemism Species confined to one region and also found in other regions'.
