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.
