Patterns of endemism of terrestrial mammals inhabiting México are analyzed by applying Parsimony Analysis of Endemicity (PAE) to 47 ecoregions. The ecoregions were classified in 2 main groups: ecoregions of the Baja California Peninsula and ecoregions of the rest of the country. We found 27 ecoregions with characteristic taxa, and 5 areas of endemism: Northern High Plateau, Baja California, Chiapas, Isthmus, and Yucatán Peninsula. Groups of ecoregions are basically congruent with other regionalization schemes previously proposed for the country.
