    Description

    The Madrean Archipelago harbors one of the most diverse mammalian communities in North America. We used the Web of Science literature search tool to assess the diversity of peer-reviewed publications on mammals in Arizona and New Mexico as an indicator of publications in the region. The number of publications of all mammals was lower than expected with a mode of 0 and a median of 1. Species were not studied equally in Arizona with most measures suggesting a disproportionately large number of publications on the Order Artiodactyla and small numbers of publications on the Orders Rodentia and Chiroptera. Large mammals and those found in many Arizona counties tend to be the subject of more publications. Despite the great diversity of the region, a dearth of published data on mammalian species is evidenced within the Madrean Archipelago, especially among the Rodentia and Chiroptera.
