Description: The Important Bird Areas (IBA) Program is a worldwide program through BirdLife International that identifies sites considered to provide important habitats for avian species. Criteria for designation are species abundance, diversity, and range restriction. As the United States Partner of BirdLife International, the National Audubon Society administers the IBA Program in the United States. In Mexico, the network of AICAs is administered by CONABIO. The Madrean Archipelago has a diverse range of Identified IBAs (AICAs, Áreas de Importancia para la Conservación de las Aves, in Mexico) that feature riparian, wetland, grassland, and Madrean oak woodland habitats. Five of the 24 IBAs and three of the AICAs in the region are globally significant: the Chiricahua Mountains, San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, Whitewater Draw State Wildlife Area, and Willcox Playa.

Keywords: Madrean Archipelago, Sky Islands, southwestern United States, northern Mexico, natural environment, fauna, flora, research, management, biodiversity, climate change
