Composición florística y estructura de la comunidad vegetal del límite del desierto de Sonora y la selva baja caducifolia (Noroeste de México)
TLDR
Se analizo la composicion y estructura floristica en el area limitrofe del desierto sonorense y the selva baja caducifolia, en el noroeste de Mexico, y observo una correlacion significativa entre el numero de especies y el numeros oficiales y otra inversa con the altura media of the vegetacion.

EFFECTS OF DESERT WILDFIRES ON DESERT TORTOISE (GOPHERUS AGASSIZII) AND OTHER SMALL VERTEBRATES
TLDR
It is hypothesize that indirect effects of fire on desert habitats might result in changes in the composition of diets and loss of vegetation cover, resulting in an increase in predation and Loss of protection from temperature extremes, also might cause changes in vertebrate communities in burned areas.

An Iterative and Targeted Sampling Design Informed by Habitat Suitability Models for Detecting Focal Plant Species over Extensive Areas
TLDR
A large-scale sampling design was described that used species occurrence data, habitat suitability models, and iterative and targeted sampling efforts to sample five species and satisfy two key management objectives: detecting non-native invasive plants across previously unsampled gradients and characterizing the distribution of non- native invasive plants at landscape to regional scales.

What Drives the Conversion of Native Rangeland to Buffelgrass (Pennisetum ciliare) Pasture in Mexico’s Sonoran Desert?: The Social Dimensions of a Biological Invasion
The introduction of invasive exotic plants has many social dimensions. Although a diverse literature identifies some of the social drivers of exotic plant introduction and subsequent invasion,Expand

Contemporary Fire Regimes Provide a Critical Perspective on Restoration Needs in the Mexico-United States Borderlands
The relationship between people and wildfire has always been paradoxical: fire is an essential ecological process and management tool, but can also be detrimental to life and property. Consequently,Expand
Effect of buffelgrass fires on two Sonoran Desert trees: Bark and structural analyses
Abstract The introduction of exotic buffelgrass (Pennisetum ciliare) to the Sonoran Desert has modified the structure and fuel loads of desert scrub, creating a continuous fuel bed and altering fireExpand
