ABSTRACT
Bursera medranoana sp.n. originated as a hybrid between B. morelensis Ramírez and B. schlechtendalii Eng., as can be proved by its morphological characters and its terpenoid composition. The three species occur together at the bottom of the Barranca de Tolantongo, east of Ixmiquilpan (state of Hidalgo, Mexico), where B. morelensis forms low forests on steep slopes. In a few localities, however, the density of trees of B. medranoana equals that of B. morelensis.

    Tree species rarely exposed to burning, like in everwet tropical forests, are unlikely to be fire adapted. Therefore, one could hypothesize that these species are affected equally by burning and that tree abundance changes are linked solely to fire behavior. Alternatively, if species do react...
