By Topic

Note: This bibliography was initially developed for an SDSU course on the ecology of the Colorado River delta region. Unbeknownst to many this includes the region with Indio, Yuma and San Felipe at its vertices (see endpiece map in Sykes, 1937). The bibliography is being expanded with new topical headings and eventually each citation will be annotated by CIW scholars or accompanied by its abstract or summary.
