The persistence of such different climatic regions in this vast territory for an interval nearly half as long as the Cenozoic must have had a profound effect on soil development and, of course, on the resident biota. It should be noted that northern Mexico’s present-day climate is influenced and partly determined by factors or phenomena occurring elsewhere, such as the El Niño/Southern Oscillation, polar air-mass invasions, and hurricanes, which in turn are controlled by physical or astronomical causes of worldwide reach.
Lago Santiaguillo, about 70 km north of Durango City, is the only lake in this province. Geomorphologically, the province consists of closely spaced volcanic sierras and plateaus that coalesce to form larger ranges. River systems draining largely into the Gulf of California separate the individual sierras and plateaus (fig. 7). Geologic Aspect The volcanic bodies that make up the Sierra Madre Occidental Province are arranged in 2 complexes. The Lower Complex chiefly consists of andesitic lavas and pyroclastic sheets (some are rhyolitic) dating 100–45 ma; it is broadly arcuate and in- tensely faulted; its basement is largely unknown, but some Cretaceous carbonates have already been detected.
The only Jurassic (Early) vertebrate fauna of this province comes from the Huizachal Canyon in Tamaulipas (fig. 7, location 1; Clark et al. 1994, 1998; Fastovsky et al. 1995; Reynoso-Rosales 1996; Montellano-Ballesteros 2002). The Mesozoic units are folded into anticlinoria and synclinoria, whose spacing diminishes from west to east; around Monterrey, Nuevo León, they bend westward, changing their axial orientation from north-northwest–south-southeast to nearly east–west. These structures are also cut by faults.
