  • First observation of the mexican endemic Agave difformis A. Berger
           (Agavaceae) out of its native range

    • Abstract: Resumen La especie endémica mexicana Agave difformis A. Berger (Agavaceae) se reporta por primera vez fuera de su área de distribución nativa. Se ha localizado una pequeña población compuesta por dos núcleos separados por unos 50 m cerca de la ciudad de Tarragona (Cataluña, España). Se ha realizado su censo (contabilizándose un total de 139 rosetas, 46 de las cuales son adultas), además de un estudio morfométrico. La población, que parece bien establecida y con tendencia a la expansión, se encuentra bajo un pequeño pinar con restos de maquia litoral. La profusión de especies alóctonas (y algunas autóctonas usadas en jardinería) como acompañantes indica que la población de A. difformis podría haberse originado a partir del abandono de restos de poda.Abstract The Mexican endemic Agave difformis A. Berger (Agavaceae) is reported for the first time out of its native range. A small population composed of two groups separated by 50 m has been located near the city of Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain). A census of the population has been carried out (a total of 139 rosettes were counted, of which 46 were regarded as adults) together with a morphometric study. The population of A. difformis, which occurs under pine trees in remnants of Mediterranean coastal scrub, appears to be well-established and expanding. The large number of accompanying alien species (as well as some native taxa used as ornamentals) suggests that the population of A. difformis could have originated from dumped garden debris.
  • The Lonicera pilosa (Kunth) Spreng. complex

    • Abstract: Resumen Se revisa el complejo de Lonicera pilosa (Kunth) Spreng., formado por Lonicera cerviculata, L. pilosa var. pilosa y L. pilosa var. glabra. Se realizó un análisis de escalamiento multidimensional utilizando 38 caracteres morfológicos y 152 pliegos de herbario, encontrando que el complejo está formado por tres grupos, dos especies y una nueva variedad que aquí se propone.Abstract The Lonicera pilosa (Kunth) Spreng complex, which consists of Lonicera cerviculata, L. pilosa var. pilosa and L. pilosa var. glabra, is reviewed. A multidimensional scaling analysis, using 38 morphological characters and 152 herbarium sheets, was applied. The complex is integrated by three groups, two species and a variety here proposed as new to science.
  • Note on the first historical records of two invasive plants in the Baja

    • Abstract: Resumen La fecha de introducción de las plantas invasoras en nuevas regiones es de gran relevancia ecológica, evolutiva y biogeográfica, pero suele ser difícil de determinar. Las fuentes históricas de la época de colonización europea pueden contener datos relevantes sobre la llegada de taxones no nativos a América. Durante el Periodo Misional Jesuita (16971768) se establecen los primeros asentamientos humanos permanentes y se introduce la agricultura y la ganadería en la Península de Baja California (PBC). Se revisaron textos escritos por los misioneros de esta orden relativos a la PBC y se encontraron datos precisos en la crónica de Miguel del Barco sobre la presencia y abundancia, en la primera mitad del siglo XVIII, de dos plantas actualmente invasoras en la región: Arundo donax y Ricinus communis.Abstract The date of introduction of invasive species in new areas is of high ecological, evolutionary and biogeographical relevance, although it can be difficult to determine. Historical sources on the European colonization period may contain relevant data about the arrival of some non-native taxa in America. During the Jesuit missionary period (1697-1768) in the Peninsula of Baja California (PBC), the first permanent human settlements were established and agriculture and livestock were introduced. Written sources by Jesuit missionaries who were present in the PBC were reviewed and precise data were found in the chronicle of Miguel del Barco regarding the presence and abundance of two currently invasive plants Arundo donax and Ricinus communis, which were already present in the PBC by the first half of eighteenth century.
  • Three new species of Myrtaceae of the Sierra Madre Oriental, Mexico

    • Abstract: Resumen Se describen e ilustran tres especies nuevas de Myrtaceae de los estados de Querétaro e Hidalgo: Calyptranthes moctezumae, Eugenia queretaroana y E. huasteca. Calyptranthes moctezumae está relacionada con C. schlechtendaliana y C. schiedeana, de las que se distingue por el menor número de nervaduras por hoja, peciolos de 1 a 5 mm de largo, y por habitar en bosque tropical caducifolio, subcaducifolio y matorral submontano. Eugenia queretaroana es similar a E. crenularis y E. pueblana, de las que se diferencia por el indumento cobrizo, peciolo terete, hipantio infundibuliforme y frutos elipsoidales con un falso estípite en la base. Por su parte Eugenia huasteca se puede relacionar morfológicamente con E. capuli; sin embargo, la primera presenta indumento simple, pardo rojizo a blanquecino y flores sésiles, características que la separan claramente de cualquier otra especie de este género.Abstract Three new species of Myrtaceae from Querétaro and Hidalgo, México are described and illustrated: Calyptranthes moctezumae, Eugenia queretaroana and E. huasteca. Calyptranthes moctezumae is related with C. schlechtendaliana and C. schiedeana, from which it is distinguished by the lesser number of nerves per leaf, petioles 1 to 5 mm long, and because it occurs in tropical deciduous and subdeciduous forest, as well as submontane scrub. Eugenia queretaroana is similar to E. crenularis and E. pueblana; nevertheless, it is distinguished by the coppery indumentum, terete petiole, infundibuliform hypanthium, and ellipsoid fruit with a false stipe at base. Eugenia huasteca is related with E. capuli; however, the new species is distinguishable from all the other species in the genus by the brownishred to whitish indumentum of simple hairs and the sessile flowers.
  • Note on the population structure of Echinocactus platyacanthus (Cactaceae)
           in the Biosphere Reserve "Barranca de Metztitlán", Hidalgo, Mexico

    • Abstract: Resumen Echinocactus platyacanthus es uno de los cactus más abundantes y ampliamente distribuidos en México. En este trabajo se comparó la estructura poblacional de esta especie en dos áreas con grado de accesibilidad contrastante dentro de la Reserva de la Biósfera "Barranca de Metztitlán" en Hidalgo. El sitio de alcance difícil (S1) presentó un número más grande de individuos, con mayor altura y más organismos juveniles. Por su parte, la localidad con fácil acceso (S2) registró un predominio de adultos. Se censaron 456 plantas y solo se encontró una plántula. Se estimó una densidad de 1410 individuos/ha en S1 y únicamente 863 en S2. En ambos sitios se determinó el tipo de población como regresiva, ya que los individuos de la etapa de madurez se encontraron en un número significativamente más grande y la cantidad de los juveniles fue muy baja (12.9%), hecho que sugiere un futuro decline poblacional.Abstract Echinocactus platyacanthus is one of the most abundant and widely distributed cacti in Mexico. In this work we compared the population structure of this species in two areas with contrasting accessibility degree within the Biosphere Reserve "Barranca de Metztitlán" in the state of Hidalgo. The site with difficult accessibility (S1) had a larger total number of individuals, with larger dimensions, and more juveniles. The site with easy accessibility (S2) had a predominance of adults. A total of 456 individuals were counted and only one sapling was found. We estimated a population density of 1410 individuals/ha in S1 and 863 individuals/ha in S2. We determined the type of population as regressive, because in both sites we found a significantly larger number of individuals in the stage of maturity and a low number of juveniles (12.9%), which suggests a future population decline.
  • The floodplain forest in Tabasco, Mexico, a threatened plant community

    • Abstract: Resumen Se analizó la estructura, composición y diversidad arbórea de los dos rodales más importantes de selva mediana perennifolia de Bravaisia integerrima (SMPC) de Tabasco, México: el de la Reserva Ecológica Yu-Balcah (YCAH) con una superficie de 271 ha y el del Parque Estatal La Chontalpa (PECH) con 191 ha. En cada uno se levantaron 10 parcelas de muestreo de 1000 m2, cubriendo un área total de 2 ha. Se identificó y registró a las plantas arbóreas, diferenciando brinzales, plantas juveniles y adultos. Se aplicaron diversos índices para analizar el esfuerzo de muestreo, la diversidad de especies, la abundancia proporcional, la dominancia y la equidad. El análisis estructural se basó en el valor de importancia. La riqueza total fue 76 especies, pertenecientes a 64 géneros y 31 familias botánicas, de las que la mejor representada fue Leguminosae con 15 especies. El área basal de YCAH y PECH fue de 37.2 y 29.5 m2ha-1, respectivamente. Bravaisia integerrima fue el árbol con mayor valor de importancia en los dos rodales con un Índice correspondiente de 277. Ambos fragmentos tienen un valor del índice de Shannon de 2.0. El sitio con mejor condición ecológica fue YCAH. Se identificaron seis especies catalogadas en la NOM-059-SEMARNAT-2010. La SMPC presenta una cobertura actual en Tabasco de 490 ha. Los resultados sugieren que su estructura y composición se han visto afectados por la actividad antrópica en la región. Para garantizar la conservación de los remanentes de SMPC en el estado, es importante revisar y actualizar su situación legal y sus planes de manejo, así como generar alternativas sociales y productivas en las poblaciones cercanas. Para lograrlo se requiere de la participación de actores gubernamentales, académicos, organizaciones no gubernamentales, particulares y sociedad en conjunto.Abstract The structure, composition and diversity of the floodplain forest (SMPC) of Bravaisia integerrima were studied in the two largest forest stands in Tabasco, Mexico: the Ecological Reserve Yu-Balcah (YCAH) with 271 ha, and State Park La Chontalpa (PECH) with 191 ha. In each forest stand 10 plots of 1000 m2 were sampled. Tree individuals sampled were identified to species, and evaluated in three age categories, seedlings, saplings, and adults. The relationship between species richness and sampling effort was analyzed using Chao 2, ICE, Jacknife 1, Jacknife 2 and Bootstrap. The structural analysis was based on the importance value index. The diversity of species was evaluated, using the Margalef index (D Mg), α de Fisher, Shannon-Wiener (H') and equity of Pielou J. The dominance indices of Berger-Parker (d) and Simpson (D) were also used. The total number of species was 76, belonging to 64 genera and 33 botanical families. The richest family was Leguminosae with 15 species. The basal area of the sites YCAH and PECH was 37.2 and 29.5 m2ha-1, respectively. Bravaisia integerrima was the most important tree species in all stands, with an Importance Index of 277. The value of the Shannon index was 2.0 in both sites. YCAH showed the best ecological condition. Six species present in the stands are considered as threatened in Mexico (NOM-059-SEMARNAT-2010). The current extent of the floodplain forest of Bravaisia in Tabasco State is 490 ha. The results suggest that the structure and composition of this forest has been affected by human activity. As a consequence, to guarantee the conservation of these remnants of SMPC in Tabasco, it is important to verify their legal situation and the application of management plans, designed to improve the productive activities of the rural communities that live around the stands. To succeed in this endeavor, it is necessary that governmental actors, academics, non-governmental organizations, and civil society work together.
