The Great Tamaulipan Natural Province

The Great Tamaulipan Natural Province produced by the Mexican NGO, Agrupacion Sierra Madre, and the Tamaulipus State Government of Mexico focuses on an incredibly biodiverse region of the world along the Tropic of Cancer and includes southwest Texas, and the portions of the Mexican states Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipus, San Luis Potosi and Veracruz, called the "great Tamaulipan natural province".

 

 

The wealth of flora and fauna species contained in this ecoregion, one of the most diverse regions in North America, is truly amazing and includes coastal lagoons, vast plains, steep sierras, and arid deserts. The location of the great Tamaulipan natural province -- this juncture between two biogeographical regions in the Americas, the Nearctic and the Neotropical, provides homes for hundreds of different species.

 

 

The book includes fifteen chapters filled with beautiful images from five photographers who traveled for over a year capturing the sights and scenes of the region.

 

 

The Great Tamaulipan Natural Province is an admirable combination of design and photography with scientific dissemination, and a call to becoming aware, both in Mexico and abroad, of the true significance of these natural riches and the need to study and conserve them adequately.

 

 

Finding, discovering, and conserving all this biological diversity is an opportunity that nature offers us today, in the early 21st century. It is up to all of us ensure that the great Tamaulipan natural province remains for many more centuries.
