Review for SKY ISLAND ALLIANCE, Tucson, AZ, USA
The Sky Islands Alliance (SIA) is a major player in the conservation of some of the most important ecosystem services providers of northwestern Mexico and southwestern USA. The persistence of the ecosystems in mountains sorrounded by a desert sea, not only assures the maintenance of biodiversity and human culture, but guarentees the most important commodity of desertlands: water. Throughout its work, SIA has promoted research, conservation, management and sustainable use of these unique ecosystems for now 20 years. SIA has influenced my academic work and has steered the way I perceive research and conservation to such degree that I have ended writing research papers directly isnpired by its activieties. Its involvement with research scientists as well as with the inhabitants of remote ranches up in the mountains truly reflects SIA's mission of working across a transversal section of the society to achieve conservation, restoration and sensible development of the region ecosystems.
