Description: Sierra La Madera is a Sky Island mountain range in the Madrean Archipelago. It is in Fracción V of the Ajos-Bavispe CONANP Reserve in the Municipios (= Counties) of Cumpas, Granados, Huásabas, Moctezuma, and Villa Hidalgo. Medium and large mammals were inventoried using camera traps. Eighteen Wild View 2® camera traps were deployed during four sampling periods: August- September, September- November, and November-December (two times). The first and second sampling periods were on Ranchos La Bellota, La Palmita, and San Fernando in the southern Sierra La Madera. The last two sampling periods were on Ranchos La Mesa and El Mezquite, and Brecha CONAFOR in the northern Sierra la Madera, and again Brecha CONAFOR. The vegetation sampled was foothills thornscrub, oak woodland and pine-oak forest. Eighteen species of mammals in the orders Carnivora, Artiodactyla, Didelphimorphia, Lagomorpha, and Rodentia were photographed. Four species of birds, including Aquila chrysaetos (golden eagle) were also photographed.
