Abstract

Once a mighty and wild river with abundant wetlands, the section of the Colorado River flowing through Mexico has become a trickle ... whenever it flows. Most of the time since the 1960s, until recently, it did not and was completely dry. This brought tremendous changes in the "original" constitution and biological processes of the region, although they have not been fully investigated.
