ABSTRACT
Mammillaria cielensis (cactaceae), a new species of cactaceae from "el cielo" Biosphere reserve (RBC) in tamaulipas, mexico, is described and illustrated. The new species is similar to M. zublerae repp., differing from this species in the size of the stem, the rounded form of the apex, the smaller tubercles, the areoles with white wool, the more numerous and somewhat shorter radial and central spines, the colour and size of the fruits, the shinier and larger seeds, with heavily pitted and slightly reticulate testa, and larger hilum. Its known distribution is restricted to pine oak forest in the RBC, in the southern part of the state of tamaulipas, mexico. a comparison with related species is presented.

    One of the habitats occupied by Mammillaria magnimamma is a 2000-year old lava-field, in Mexico City. The great ecological interest on this lava-field and the little knowledge there is regarding cacti population ecology have compelled us to analyse the demography of this species to evaluate its...

    We compared the demography of two populations of Mammillaria huitzilopochtli, an endemic and threatened rupicolous cacti species with a narrow distribution in the semiarid Tehuacán-Cuicatlán region of central Mexico. Censuses were conducted over a 5-year period in two populations: a...

    The internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region (ITS1, 5.8S rDNA, ITS2) represents the most widely applied nuclear marker in eukaryotic phylogenetics. Although this region has been assumed to evolve in concert, the number of investigations revealing high degrees of intra-individual polymorphism...

    The Cactaceae family in Mexico is particularly important because members of this family exhibit a high degree of endemism. Unfortunately, many species of the Cactaceae are threatened or endangered. We employed an integral projection model for studies of the population dynamics of Mammillaria...

    Artificial environmental conditions in the tissue culture influence growth and induce aberration from the characteristic organization pattern. As CAM plants, cacti are particularly susceptible to altered growth environment. In vitro propagated Mammillaria plants spontaneously produce callus...
