This Collection of papers address the endangered biodiversity of Cuatro Cienegas Basin (CCB), an oasis in the Chihuahuan desert in North Mexico. It showcases part of the multidisciplinary effort which is in process and describes the incredible biodiversity (at many levels) as well as the dangers that loom over the aquifer given unsustainable agricultural practices in the desert.
