Researchers from the Science Department at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) created a list of ligneous vegetation in the Tejupilco municipality, as a result of botanical field work.

Specialists Carmen Zepeda Gómez, Xóchitl Aguilar Miguel, Laura White Olascoaga and Cristina Burrola Aguilar presented the results of their work titled “Useful Trees and Bushes from Dry Forests and Fields in Tejupilco, State of Mexico,” where they describe 138 species of woody vegetation of 44 botanical families and 100 genera.

The researchers said that 72 percent of the woody vegetation are trees, 25 percent are bushes and 3 percent are vines. In addition, 58 percent of all studies plants belong to the same 10 families of vegetation.

They said that 68 percent of the species have more than one use: 22 species bear fruit, 15 are cultivated specifically for the fruits they yield and 17 are native plants with ecological restoration and reforestation properties.

The experts spoke about the risk of the disappearance of dry forests and how to properly utilize their resources, which depend on various social and environmental factors.
