ABSTRACT
Bursera cinerea, a species described more than 120 years ago, was neglected by botanists of the present century. Recent explorations performed in the central part of the Mexican state of Veracruz indicate that this tree should have played a major role in the tropical deciduous forest that formerly covered a wide area in this part of Mexico, and still persists in remanents of this forest. B. cinerea closely resembles B. simaruba (L.) Sarg., but differs in its leaves with fewer leaflets and smaller fruits.

    Lianas are an important component of most tropical forests, where they vary in abundance from high in seasonal forests to low in aseasonal forests. We tested the hypothesis that the physiological ability of lianas to fix carbon (and thus grow) during seasonal drought may confer a distinct...
