Contando a las subespecies es posible distinguir un total de 61 taxa. These records represent the public and official information used by Mexican federal authorities to design biological conservation policies and do not include other records like personal collections or databases. To sample and calculate the approximate species area of occupancy we used a grid of 1, hexagons with an area of ee 2 each.

Patterns of richness and endemism of the Mexican herpetofauna, a matter of spatial conaervacion.

Vague definitions of some risk categories such biollgia ‘threatened’ A ,’endangered’ P’under special protection’ Prand the difference in the primary function of the assessment lists and their association with local laws Harris et al. Further, we detected a noteworthy discrepancy between international and Mexican conservation priorities for turtle conservation.

Recently, Ochoa-Ochoa, Campbell, and Flores-Villela tested for different scales in diversity and endemism for the herpetofauna of Mexico, and suggested that fine scales allow recognition of more precise biogeographic patterns.

Table 1 summarizes the equivalence of threats between the two lists. Turtles of the world, 7th edition: Third, so far there are no quantitative results derived from the public policies on the conservation of non-marine turtles in Mexico. We are aware that this approach could obscure disjunct distributions Terborgh and Winter, and overestimate real distribution areas i.

We want to thank John Legler and Richard Vogt for inviting us to the Symposium on Mexican Turtles at the 11th Turtle Survival Alliance TSA meeting, at which the original ideas for coservacion paper were presented and discussed in an early stage.

Even when the correspondence analyses were conducted besides the non-significant result of the contingency tablewe only found a partial congruency between those species listed in Under Special Protection Pr category by the NOM and the Least Concern LC category of the Red Conservscion. We also generate a categorization of threats based on the presence of species in all the survey lists, ‘5 lists’, ‘4 lists’, ‘3 lists’, and ‘2 lists’ in conjunction with their distribution range within the country.


The ecology, exploitation and conservation of river turtles. The answers to these questions should provide a clearer sense of whether including species on imperiled species lists i.

All of these taxa are endemic with marginal to very restricted distribution areas. Finally, the recent upgrade to species level of Bioloogia morafkai Murphy et al.

The NOM also changed from to in the number of species under specific threat categories Table 4. Ochoa-Ochoa and Flores-Villela used a 0. This primsck was first issued in under Ernesto Zedillo’s government; since then, at least three updates have been published Sedesol, ; Semarnat, The areas shaded in gray represent the nature reserves of Mexico.

The conservation status of the freshwater and terrestrial turtles of Mexico: Mexican government agencies such as Semarnat Ministry for Environment and Natural ResourcesConabio National Commission for the Study of Biodiversity – a scientific authorityProfepa Federal Attorney for Environmental ProtectionInecc National Institute of Ecology and Climatic Change – a scientific authority and policy makerCNF National Commission of Primxckand DGVS General Directorate of Wildlife – part of Semarnat, and in charge of regulating wildlife management and game are in charge of listing threatened species, protecting the listed species, designing and developing conservation programs for native species, and removing introduced species Semarnat, A series of other species were contained only in one of the lists i.

Journal of the Arizona-Nevada Academy of Science. Among all of these lists, potential good conservation coverage should be predicted for Mexican turtles; however, there are some inquiries that should be made in order to know more about Mexican non-marine turtles’ conservation status. Scandals, audits, and fictions: Threatened, endangered and vulnerable tree species: For the Southeastern Asia hotspot, for instance, poaching and commercial trade have been the main factors reducing turtle populations.

April 15, ; Accepted: Since the Red List is not a regulatory apparatus, local lists such NOM should be strengthened empowered to become a comprehensive, systematic assessment that could interact with its counterparts, such as the Endangered Species Act in the case of the shared fauna between Mexico and the U. Conservation biology of freshwater turtles and tortoises: Many of these agencies work under the Semarnat agenda the higher-level agency and part of the executive government ; however, internal agendas, lack of communication between agencies, and the frequent political and electoral uses of governmental programs within the Federal Government in Mexico limits conservation efforts and the allocation of financial resources for conservation Mathews, ; Possingham et al.


Forest resources assessment Programme. Most of the time, conservation, taxonomic, and distributional data updates reach the people in charge of updating the lists and the decision makers with considerable delay. The Red List recognizes subspecific taxonomic levels, but for Mexican turtles they are included only for few taxa.

The subspecies concept and its taxonomic application. Trends in Ecology and Evolution. The world’s most endangered tortoises and freshwater turtles. Around the world, the most important pa for turtle d are habitat loss, habitat degradation, poaching, introduced species, and subsidized predators Klemens, Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles; Second, the lack of a herpetological specialist group in Mexico that collaborates with the Federal Government or any other government level on conservation issues contrasts with the regular practice of other countries and governments, in which specialist groups, policy makers, stakeholders, land owners, and civil society work collaboratively together to solve conservation issues Primack, Each hexagon contains km2.

We tracked the NOM over the three past versions to the species level only conxervacion of the lack of subspecies availability data in the previous issues Sedesol, ; Semarnat,and the number of species included changed slightly from 23 into 28 inand to 29 in
