ABSTRACT
A list of the endemic taxa of the vascular flora of the state of Veracruz was obtained. We recorded 131 species and 10 subspecific taxa belonging in 56 families and 94 genera. The families with highest number of endemic species were Orchidaceae (11), Myrtaceae (10), Bromeliaceae (9), Poaceae (8), Begoniaceae (7), Zamiaceae (5) y Polypodiaceae (5). The vegetation types that stand out for concentrating the endemic species are: the evergreen tropical forest (52), the cloud forest (43), the deciduous tropical forest (23), the Quercus forest (20), the coniferous forest (16), the gallery forest (15) and the sub-deciduous tropical forest (11).

    Cloud forests are unusual and fragile habitats, being one of the least studied and least understood ecosystems. The tropical Andean dominion is considered one of the most significant places in the world as regards biological diversity, with a very high level of endemism. The biodiversity was...

    Floodplains in the Pacific Coastal Ecoregion (PCE) stem from steep eroding mountain landscapes in a rain forest environment, and sustain a rich array of natural resources. Like floodplains elsewhere, many of the approximately 200 coastal river valleys are profoundly altered by flow regulation...

    Abstract We related pteridophytes versus tree species composition to identify surrogate measures of diversity, and complementarity of seven cloud forest fragments. Forest structure, and fern and tree composition were determined in 70 (2 × 50 m) transects. Fern density (10,150–25,080...

    The montane forest in central Veracruz, Mexico is a hotspot of biodiversity. We asked whether lower and upper montane forests could be distinguished in this ecoregion. Variables of vegetation and seasonality in precipitation were tested across 14 sites between 1,250- and 2,550-m elevations. A...
