The definitions of these terms as applied to Botswana will be as follows:

Endemic
A taxon which has so far only been recorded from within the borders of Botswana and is considered confined to the country.
Such taxa have been indicated as follows: [End]
Near-endemic
A taxon that has its largest population confined to Botswana, or is found in a relatively confined transfrontier area.
This has been indicated as follows: [NrEnd]
