Selva Zoque, which includes the Chimalapas rain forest, is an area
of great ecological importance in Mexico. Most of the forest lies
in the state of Oaxaca but parts are in Chiapas and Veracruz. It is
the largest tract of tropical rainforest in Mexico, and contains
the majority of terrestrial biodiversity in the country. The forest
includes the Selva El Ocote, a federally protected biosphere
reserve, but is otherwise not yet protected. Despite the rich
ecology of the region, a 2003 study that focused on bird
populations stated that "the fauna of the heart of the Chimalapas,
including its vast rainforests, have seen little or no study." As
it is an impoverished region, efforts to preserve the ecology are
often at odds with demands to improve the economy.
