DUNES - EL PINACATE
Mexico
Las elevadas dunas de arena, las escarpadas montañas volcánicas, los extensos cráteres y el suelo desértico circundante de la Reserva de la Biosfera El Pinacate albergan especies que sólo pueden sobrevivir en un clima de sol intenso, de lluvias muy escasas y de temperaturas que ascienden muy rápidamente. En un lugar que generalmente se cree desprovisto de vida, se pueden encontrar más de 540 especies de plantas vasculares, 40 especies de mamíferos, 200 de aves, 40 de reptiles y anfibios y cuatro especies de peces de agua dulce. Muchas de estas especies son endémicas y se encuentran amenazadas o en peligro de extinción.

More About North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
