The Sonoran Desert Tortoise: Natural History, Biology, and Conservation (Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum Studies in Natural
One of the most recognizable animals of the Southwest, the desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) makes its home in both the Sonoran and Mohave Deserts, as well as in tropical areas to the south in Mexico. Called by Tohono O'odham people "komik'c-ed," or "shell with living thing inside," it is one of the few desert creatures kept as a domestic pet—as well as one of the most studied reptiles in the world. Most of our knowledge of desert tortoises comes from studies of Mohave Desert populations in California and Nevada. However, the ecology, physiology, and behavior of these northern populations are quite different from those of their southern, Sonoran Desert, and tropical cousins, which have been studied much less. Differences in climate and habitat have shaped the evolution of three races of desert tortoises as they have adapted to changes in heat, rainfall, and sources of food and shelter as the deserts developed in the last ten million years. This book presents the first comprehensive summary of the natural history, biology, and conservation of the Sonoran and Sinaloan desert tortoises, reviewing the current state of knowledge of these creatures with appropriate comparisons to Mohave tortoises. It condenses a vast amount of information on population ecology, activity, and behav...

Rabbits and Rats, Birds and Seeds, Cactus and Trees: Plants and animals at work in El Pinacate, Sonoran
Often when we look at a desert landscape, we see only today’s "snapshot" of the plants and animals that live there. But what would we see if we took a much longer look — long enough to see the dramatic changes that happen over time in this dynamic ecosystem? This little book tells the fascinating story of life in the desert as seen through the eyes of Renaldo, a Sonoran desert tortoise who has observed the weather, plants and animals in the highly diverse El Pinacate (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve) for many years. “I am more than 80 years old,” begins Renaldo, “and I’ve lived here all my life. I want to tell you about some of the things I’ve seen.” Photos, drawings and Renaldo’s clear explanations help readers of all ages and backgrounds understand this Sonoran desert and encourage them to wonder about what they see there: • Why is that packrat nest surrounded by a mess of sharp-spined cactus "buds"? • Why is this saguaro cactus standing all alone, while that one over there seems to be "embraced" by the branches of a mesquite tree? • Why do some ocotillo plants have a few long stems reaching almost straight up, while other ocotillos are "bushy," with more, shorter stems? • What killed the cactuses whose woody "skeletons" we see s...
