The Mexican Islands bioregion, located in the Pacific Ocean at the top of the Central America (Neotropical) realm, includes the Islas Revillagigedo just below the Baja California Peninsula as well as Clipperton Island farther south. These islands consist of tropical dry forest and shrublands with two ecoregions – Islas Revillagigedo Dry Forests (533), Clipperton Island Shrub and Grasslands (568) – as well as an important marine protected area proposed for the waters surrounding Clipperton Island. The total land area of this bioregion is approximately 24,000 hectares.
