The desert islands in the Sea of Cortez are little known except to a few intrepid tourists, sailors, and fishermen. Though at first glance these stark islands may appear barren, they are a refuge for an astounding variety of plants and animals.
This book examines the biogeography of this remarkable part of the world. It explores the geological origin of the gulf and its islands, presents some of the basics of island biogeography, details insular life - including residents of the intertidal zone - and provides a brief outlook for preserving this area.
