Jalisco dry forests

WWF Abstract

The Jalisco Dry Forests are a region of unparalleled diversity in Mexico. These rich forests, with more than 750 species of plants, are a crucial point in the migratory routes of many birds coming from Canada and the United States each winter. They also provide refuge for many of the rare and endangered species in Mexico; more than a quarter of the 70 mammal species that live here are endangered. These forests are also known for their high numbers of endemic plant, reptile, and invertebrate species. The forests in Chamela alone have more endemic vertebrates than any other part of Mexico.
