Other regions to watch:
Indonesia and Malaysia, where 22.7 percent of new species discoveries will occur.
Tropical regions in Africa, where 16.9 percent of new species discoveries will likely occur.
Finding undiscovered life in Europe and the U.S. is unlikely, but there’s a slim chance scientists could discover new mammals in Sardinia and reptiles in Spain.
But we could find new amphibians in the southeastern U.S., reptiles in the American Southwest, and even mammals on the U.S.-Mexico border.
