Description: The UVR area of north-central Arizona overlaps the Central Highlands and the Plateau Uplands biogeographic provinces. The UVR area occupies about 6,700 km2 (2,600 mi2) of Yavapai and Coconino Counties (fig. 1.1), and its watershed encompasses the northern valley of the Verde River bounded by the escarpment of the Mogollon Rim to the north and northeast and by the Black Hills to the southwest. The Mogollon Rim escarpment is the boundary between the Plateau uplands province and the Central highlands province. It is a steeply sloping cliff that rises 310 to 610 m (1,000 to 2,000 ft) from the Verde Valley floor to elevations of 1,680 to 2,290 m (5,500 to 7,500 ft). The Rim is dissected by deeply incised canyons. South of the Rim, the landscape is characterized by many buttes and mesas.

Keywords: fluvial ecosystem, history, climate, soils, vegetation, geomorphology, watersheds, water quality, fish fauna, Upper Verde River
