The Sierra Madre Occidental pine–oak forests are a subtropical coniferous forest ecoregion of the Sierra Madre Occidental range from the southwest USA region to the western part of Mexico. They are home to a large number of endemic plants and important habitat for wildlife. Coordinates of a latitude of. N and longitude of.

The Sierra Madre Occidental (SMOc) is located in the boundary between the Nearctic and Neotropical regions, area which has been considered as a complex transition zone. To depict biogeographic patterns, we used strict consensus cladograms from parsimony analyses of endemicity (PAE) and phenograms from an unweighted pair-group method with arithmetic average clustering algorithm.

The Madrean pine–oak woodlands are an ecoregion of the Tropical and subtropical coniferous forests biome, located in North America. They are subtropical woodlands found in the mountains of Mexico and the southwestern United States. Conservation International estimates the woodlands' original area at 461,265 km². The woodlands are surrounded at lower elevations by other ecoregions, mostly tropical and subtropical deserts and xeric shrublands, forests, and grasslands.

The biogeography of the herpetofauna of the pine-oak woodlands of the Sierra Madre Occidental. For example, there are numerous montane species found in the Sierra Madre Occidental of Mexico that are not known from the NSIR (McCranie and Wilson 1987)

The biogeography of the herpetofauna of the pine-oak woodlands of the Sierra Madre Occidental. Milwaukee Public Museum Contr. For example, there are numerous montane species found in the Sierra Madre Occidental of Mexico that are not known from the NSIR (McCranie and Wilson 1987). The same is true for all HAs. Herpetofaunal endemism on the species level is very low in the NSIR, and there is not a distinctive herpetofaunal assemblage of the NSIR and adjacent Mexican Sky Islands.

Sierra Madre Occidental pine-oak forests. The Sierra Madre Occidental pine-oak forests are a subtropical coniferous forest ecoregion of the Sierra Madre Occidental range from the southwest USA region to the western part of Mexico.

The Sierra Madre Occidental being the largest mountain rage in Mexico, is the home to.

The Sierra Madre Occidental being the largest mountain rage in Mexico, is the home to a huge diversity of pine trees species. There are 24 different pine species in this mountain range and most are located in the highland forests of the Sierra Madre Occidental. The original habitats of the Sierra Madre Occidental included forest of pines and Douglas-firs at the higher elevations with oak-wooded grassland on the lower slopes. The vegetation of the pine-oak forest differs between zones of lower temperatures and higher elevations.
