The Sierra de San Pedro Mártir is a giant mass of rock three kilometers high that, with its magnificent forests, separates two completely different universes: Towards the Pacific, the scrubs and chaparrals of the California Floristic Province, and towards the Gulf of California, a rugged desert of sand and stone in Mexico’s driest corner. No other part of the world harbors an environmental gradient as dramatic as this one. Botanical diversity in this range is as spectacular as its landscapes. Using attractive visual keys and a botanical photography of singular beauty, this book puts at our disposal a detailed, pleasant, and easy-to-use field guide that will bring us closer to the plants of the sierra and help us understand its extraordinary importance.
