Arizona Mountains forests

WWF Abstract

A unique mix of species makes this ecoregion special. One can find both Chihuahua pines and ponderosa pines, northern saw-whet owls and Montezuma quail. Not only is this ecoregion the southern extent of the spruce and fir forests most common in the Rockies, but it is also the northern extent of many Mexican wildlife species, including tropical birds and reptiles.
