    Description

    The Sierra Nevada’s biological distinction and diversity are almost as legendary as its spectacular peaks and beautiful granite landscapes. The Sierra Nevada is recognized as a zoogeographic region on the basis of the coincidence of species ranges (for example, Udvardy 1969, 1975; Welsh 1994). Udvardy (1969) defined the Sierra Nevada bioregion as bounded by the Great Basin to the north and east, the Mojave Desert to the south, and the Central Valley of California to the west. Welsh (1994) further delineated the Sierra Nevada into three latitudinal segments, recognizing shifts in species composition from north to south along the 650-kilometer north-south extent of the largest single mountain range in the contiguous United States.
