About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

This book is a guide to the real treasures of the Baja California Pacific Islands, their endemic plants and animals, found here and nowhere else on the earth.

The authors of this book have identified a total of 69 endemic species or subspecies from the islands that run along the coast of Baja California: Islas Coronado, Todos Santos, San Martín, San Jerónimo, San Benito, Cedros, and Natividad. The endemic biota comprises 35 species or subspecies of plants, 15 reptiles, 8 birds, and 11 mammals, a surprisingly large number for islands so close to the mainland, underscoring the unique oceanic nature of these insular ecosystems. The guide is written in simple language, and each species is represented with clear photos in full colour. It will become a fundamental tool for any researcher, naturalist, or conservationist interested in this unique region of Mexico.
