             abstract = "Protected areas have been established historically in residual 
                         places where the potential for extractive uses is low, implying 
                         that places at risk are usually under-protected. Argentina is no 
                         exception, with few protected areas established in productive 
                         regions that are prone to conversion. Here, using reptiles as a 
                         study group and considering the most important human threats in 
                         north-western Argentina, we estimated priority conservation areas 
                         where we expect species to persist in the face of climate change 
                         and land conversion. Protected areas cover no more than 9% of the 
                         study region, but represent less than 15% of reptile 
                         distributions. There are great opportunities for improving the 
                         conservation status in the region by protecting only 8% more of 
                         north-western Argentina, with the level of species protection 
                         inside the protected area network increasing almost four-fold, 
                         reaching 43% of species distributions on average and 59% of the 
                         distributions of threatened reptiles. Fortunately, the highest 
                         diversity of reptiles in the region does not match the places 
                         targeted for agriculture expansion. Our findings suggest that 
                         future prioritization schemes should embrace other groups that are 
                         especially diverse in the Chaco ecoregion, which overlaps with our 
                         study area.",
