Biodiversity and pyrodiversity in San Pedro Mártir mountain range

A Binational Working Group 2022 Small Grants Recipient


Fires shape the landscape and structure of forests and they favor the formation of patches of different ages and types of vegetation. However, changes in fire management and climate change have modified fire processes and their behavior. By collecting information on how individual avian, mammal, and plant species respond to fires of different severities in the San Pedro Mártir mountain range, scientists leading this project aim to determine the relationship between pyrodiversity and forest biodiversity.
