Bajío dry forests

WWF Abstract

The few remaining pockets of Bajío dry forest grow in the shallow soils of the mountains in the Mexican Trans-volcanic Belt. Located in the west central section of the country, the landscape is one of steep slopes, canyons, and valleys. The long dry season may last up to eight months. Dominant tree species that survive include several copals, pajaro bobo, ceiba, quiebracha, and casahuate. Some of the herbaceous plants include grasses such as gama grass, curly mesquite, and purple muhly. Dwarf vireos are occasionally seen flitting through these forests.
