This collage depicts Mexico's megadiversity, which features high levels of species richness and endemism harbored in many different ecosystems across different landscapes. Many unique cultures use the country's biological wealth in diverse ways. In an article in this issue, José Sarukhán and coauthors present a recent science-based assessment of the biodiversity and ecosystem services of Mexico, intended to be a decisionmaking tool for policymakers. They describe the assessment methodology and highlight the major findings, which will be useful for similar studies in other megadiverse countries. Collage design: Bernardo Terroba. Photographs (from left to right and top to bottom): Miguel Ángel Sicilia (1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 16, 18, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 32, 34, 35, 36, 39, 42, 45), Iván Montes de Oca (2, 3, 5, 10, 12, 13, 19, 22, 28, 30, 31, 33, 43, 44, 46, 49, 50), Patricia Koleff (14), Laura Rojas Paredes (15, 48), Isaí Domínguez Guerrero (17, 38, 40), Joanna Acosta Velázquez (29, 37, 41), Carlos Galindo (47). All of the photographs are from the CONABIO image bank.
