DescriptionThis fascinating site profiles the biotic communities in the Colorado Plateau, which includes parts of Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico and the plateau's diverse flora and fauna which includes a "significant number of endemic species that have evolved in areas of relative isolation". Specific sections include threatened and endangered species, paleocommunities, and agents of biotic change. The site also includes an introduction to the geology, geography and ecology of the area which is "one of North America's most geographically and culturally diverse regions". This resource forms part of the Land Use History of North America, a USGS sponsored programme profiling historical vegetation and land cover patterns.
