A description of the belts of vegetation in Sierra de San Pedro Mártir, Baja California, is made. Belts were discerned from aerial photographs and verified by field reconnaissance in which the sigmatistic phytosociological method was used. Five belts of vegetation (Inframediterranean, Thermomediterranean, Mesomediterranean, Supramediterranean and Mesotropical) are recognized in San Pedro Mártir. Every belt is defined by means of climatological parameters and dominant plant associations.

    Abstract The aim of this study was to analyze the main processes that determine changes in landscape patterns and vegetation cover from 1957-1994 to develop a model for land cover dynamics. Land cover and landscape patterns were assessed and compared using aerial photographs taken in 1957, 1985,...
