Naturalist William W. Dunmire‘s latest book New Mexico’s Living Landscapes: A Roadside View, guides readers through the varied ecoregions of New Mexico.

New Mexico boasts the third most diverse landscape in the nation.  Its six ecoregions include the Chihuahuan Desert, bordering Mexico; the Great Basin Desert, spilling over from Nevada, Utah, and Arizona; the Great Plains Grassland to the east; the Great Basin Grassland in the Rio Grande River Valley; the Alpine Mountain forests of the Sangre de Christo and Sandia Mountains; and the Pinion-Jupiter Woodlands scattered throughout mountain bases.  The colorfully illustrated New Mexico’s Living Landscapes provides readers with an understanding of the nuanced ecosystems that mark the state with their breathtaking natural beauty.

William W. Dunmire is a former National Park Service Naturalist whose career has taken him to Yellowstone National Park and Yosemite National Park, among others.  He is the author (with Gail D. Tierney) of Wild Plants and Native Peoples of the Four Corners, Wild Plants of the Pueblo Province, and Gardens of New Spain.   http://www.collectedworksbookstore.com/dunmire
