Bird Diversirty and Endemism in
a Mexican Elevational Gradient
Bird communities have been shown to have highly heterogeneous
distributional patterns along elevational gradients around the globe.
In particular, our study demostrates that the bird diversity and
endemism are likely associated to ecological and anthropogenic
influences along a subtropical elevational range in southern Mexican
highlands. Our study also captures the biological and ecological
understanding of bird communities in mountain landscapes in a way that
can inform conservation efforts and management of natural resources
across an important biologically hotspot in Mexico and Mesoametica –
the Sierra Madre del Sur.
