Tucson Audubon Society: Southeast Arizona Birding Festival – The Scorpion Diversity of SoAZ—or what Scorpions Did Gadsden Purchase?

Arizona is one of the world’s hot spots for scorpion diversity, especially SoAZ, the southern portion of Arizona that was included in the Gadsden Purchase.

Join Kari as he discusses the rich diversity of scorpions of Arizona, concentrating on the area referred to as SoAZ and the Gadsden Purchase. This scenically beautiful, biologically and geologically diverse region is home to five scorpion families, ten genera, and at least half of Arizona’s nearly 60 described species, and a few undescribed.
