Reptiles exhibit high species richness and endemism in deserts of northern Mexico. However, high species richness does not necessarily represent the taxonomic diversity of this group in the context of the regional reptile richness. Here, we determined the species richness, similarity, and taxonomic diversity of Chihuahuan Desert reptile assemblages in nine vegetation types (microphyll xeric scrub, xeric shrub rosette, mezquite, submontane scrub, chaparral, pasture, oak forest, juniper forest… Expand
