species range


Tulum

of the large lizard family (family (biology)), Iguanidae and is native to Mexico and Central America. The species range in size (total length, including the tail) from about 5 inches to well over one meter. The distinctive feature of this genus is presence of the enlarged, spiny scales on the tail. Ctenousaurs are generally omnivorous (omnivore), feeding on fruits, flowers, foliage, and small animals. Some members of this genus are popular as pets. At least two species


Tobago

south and east to the Guianas, Trinidad, Peru, and Brazil. There have been occasional records from Tobago. For Brazil, the species' range is along the main Amazon River Basin (Amazon Basin), as well as the coastal Atlantic Ocean, both in the northeast, as well as far south on the southeast coastal strip, (an entire coastal strip, north-east-south of about 3000 km). It is sometimes placed


Suriname

The IUCN lists Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela as current range countries. Given local extinctions, the species' range has become discontinuous. Total population numbers

Paraguay

migration migrate to South America, where they spend the winter. The Latin American population occur in virtually any wooded habitat in their range. Most of these are residents, but the populations breeding in the far southern part of this species' range (e.g. most of its range in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia) migrate north as far as Central America.

Sonora

deserts. In Mexico, the species' range flanks the Sea of Cortez in Sonora and Baja California Norte. In the United States, it is found in the western two thirds of Arizona, the Colorado Desert and Mojave Desert regions of southern California, southern Nevada, and extreme southwestern Utah. Arizona Desert hairy scorpions are a warm-desert species, specially adapted to hot and dry conditions. They are usually found in and around washes or low-elevation valleys where they dig elaborate burrows (up to


Chiapas

the inaccessibility of much of the species' range, particularly the central Amazon, estimating jaguar numbers is difficult. Researchers typically focus on particular bioregions, thus species-wide analysis is scant. In 1991, 600–1,000 (the highest total) were estimated to be living in Belize. A year earlier, 125–180 jaguars were estimated to be living in Mexico's 4,000-km 2 (2400-mi 2 ) Calakmul Biosphere Reserve, with another 350 in the state of Chiapas. The adjoining Maya Biosphere Reserve in Guatemala, with an area measuring 15,000 km 2 (9,000 mi 2 ), may have 465–550 animals. Work employing GPS (Global Positioning System) telemetry in 2003 and 2004 found densities of only six to seven jaguars per 100 km 2 in the critical Pantanal region, compared with 10 to 11 using traditional methods; this suggests the widely used sampling methods may inflate the actual numbers of cats. *Hueyatlaco - Oldest city in Mexico. *Izapa – Chief city of the Izapa civilization, whose territory extended from the Gulf Coast across to the Pacific Coast of Chiapas, in present day Mexico, and Guatemala. *Guayabo – It is believed that the site was inhabited from 1500 BCE (BC) to 1400 CE (AD), and had at its peak a population of around 10,000. The states with the greatest percentage or professing Catholics are central states, namely Guanajuato (96.4%), Aguascalientes (95.6%) and Jalisco (95.4%), whereas southeastern states have the least percentage of Catholics, namely Chiapas (63.8%), Tabasco (70.4%) and Campeche (71.3%). The percentage of professing Catholics has been decreasing over the last four decades, from over 98% in 1950 to 87.9% in 2000. Average annual growth of Catholic believers from 1990–2000 was 1.7% whereas that of Non-Catholics was 3.7%.

Indonesia

with the Glass Catfish in western Borneo (Indonesia), the present species' range is much larger. Apart from the whole of Borneo, it also includes Sumatra, the Malay Peninsula, as well as the Chao Phraya and Mekong drainage basins. It is a migratory (bird migration) insectivorous (insectivore) species breeding in mixed coniferous forest with undergrowth in Siberia. It nests near the ground. It winters in India

replacing native doves. In Australia, they are now found in streets, parks, gardens, agricultural areas and tropical scrub (scrubland)s, from Hobart, Tasmania, to Cooktown, Queensland, to Port Lincoln, South Australia. They can also be seen in Perth (Perth, Western Australia), Pemberton (Pemberton, Western Australia), Kalgoorlie (Kalgoorlie, Western Australia) and Esperance (Esperance, Western Australia), in Western Australia.

of about 100 species Steyermark ''et al.'' (1997) in the tribe (Tribe (biology)) Tecomeae of the family Bignoniaceae. The species range from northern Mexico and southern Florida south to northern Argentina, including the Caribbean islands of Hispaniola (Dominican Republic, Haiti), Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago and Cuba. The generic name is derived from words used for the trees by the Indigenous

In fact, trade from many Caribbean countries is known or suspected to be unsustainable, and illegal harvest, including fishing of the species in foreign waters and subsequent illegal international trade, is a common and widespread problem in the region. The Caribbean "International Queen Conch Initiative" is an attempt at a fisheries management scheme for this species. In 2010, Shirley penned a long blog entry at FlipCollective.com about Haiti and the consequences of its earthquake (2010 Haiti earthquake). He begins the entry by stating that he has not donated to relief efforts in Haiti and "probably will not... for the same reason that I don't give money to homeless men on the street. Based on past experiences, I don’t think the guy with the sign that reads 'Need You’re Help' is going to do anything constructive with the dollar I might give him. If I use history as my guide, I don’t think the people of Haiti will do much with my money either." WikiPedia:Haiti Dmoz:Regional Caribbean Haiti Commons:Category:Haiti
