DescriptionThe Malpai Borderlands study area is in those portions of southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico that have been biogeographically described as the Madrean Archipelago (DeBano and others 1994: 580). The area covers approximately 1,600 square miles of the Basin and Range Physiographic Province south of the Rocky Mountains and north of the Sierra Madre Occidental (fig 1.1). Arbitrarily bounded on the south by the international border with Mexico, it includes large sections of the San Bernardino, San Luis, Animas, and Playas Valleys.
