Abstract

The Central Arizona Highlands are a distinct biogeographic, climatic, and physiographic province that forms a diverse ecotone between the more extensive Colorado Plateau to the north and the Sonoran Desert ecoregions to the south (Ffolliott 1999). The Highlands coincide closely to the Arizona Transition Zone identified by ecologists, geologists, and others (Karlstrom and Bowring 1988; Hendricks and Plescia 1991; Ezzo and Price 2002). The Central Arizona Highlands have been the focus of a wide range of research efforts designed to learn more about the effects of natural and human-induced disturbances on the functions, processes, and important components of the region’s ecosystems, including hydrology (Arizona State Land Department 1962; Baker 1999).
