Field Guide to the Sandia Mountains includes sections on ecology, weather, fire, geology, flora (grasses, flowers, trees), and fauna (arthropods, reptiles and amphibians, birds, mammals), and recreational opportunities. Plant keys and fauna checklists add to the book's features. Rather than a comprehensive field guide, the selections offer the most commonly encountered species in each category, presenting information on just over 100 species of flowers, for example, among almost 500 species that can be found in the mountains.Female velvet ants such as Dasymutilla (illustrated) are found along trails in hot, dry areas. ... Most ants protect themselves by squirting formic acid at intruders, but some, like the western harvester ant, have stingers like wasps, and can sting.
