In areas at the limit of their cold tolerance, therefore, it is prudent to grow the plants in containers for some years, giving them winter protection, and only planting. 16 Tháng Tám Brahea dulcis in the Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN), U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service. Finding Brahea decumbens and Brahea dulcis growing on one of these gypsum outcrops was never part of the plan for day 3 trip around.

Brahea decumbens and Brahea dulcis growing on a gypsum outcrop in Nuevo León, Mexico

We asked for general ethnographic information including: Electronic supplementary material Additional file 1: Fruit production of the ungurahua palm Oenocarpus bataua subsp. The palm is the archetypical non-timber forest product NTFP ; since the dawn of humanity it has served many purposes [ 1 ].

Details in Additional file 1. Publisher Pan Books, London. Total density was calculated, and the population structure was graphed, distinguishing between individuals that were useful for supplying handcraft materials and those that were not.

Eighteen of them had inflorescences or infructescences during the study period. The distance between sites ranges between 4. Is found in barren and rocky areas.

The population structure was compared between localities using the chi-square statistic and a posteriori adjusted residual analysis described by Habermann [ 22 ].

Arecaceaeen dos zonas del Estado de Hidalgo. According to our ethnographic information, people have been harvesting only the leaves for at least eight decades in the region.

It was hypothesized that this NTFP is used in a broad variety of ways, and that the rate of new leaf production per individual would be low due to the arid conditions, but that the potential harvest per unit area as a whole would be significant due to the high densities of populations in the RBBM. Our new book to be released soon is Edible Shrubs.

The area is heavily eroded and grazed the latter particularly in the past. QR Codes are barcodes that can be read by mobile phone smartphone cameras.

Why is this noteworthy? Less than 6 m. The leaf production rates per treatment were: Comparison of total density and density of useful individuals of B. During our descent we ran into a road block. This study braheq the first to have the stated goal of optimizing new leaf production.

Footnotes Competing interests The authors declare that they have no competing interests. I could have been taking out plants in my pack instead of carrying my camera gear. Salt tolerance Low indicates that the palm does not tolerate salinity. Modeling the stipe growth of the Oenocarpus bataua palm in the Central Cordillera of the Andes, Colombia.

Modern revisions suggest they are the variable species, Brahea dulcis, but actually conform more closely to the defunct species Brahea berlandieri. Received Apr brxhea Accepted Dec The RBBM includes tropical arid scrub, tropical deciduous forest, submontane scrub, pine forest, pasture, and riparian woodland ecosytems [ 20 ].

Collaborations to share experiences with peasant farmers from Guerrero is recommended. If you have important information about this plant that may help other brahez please add a comment or link below.

The majority of products are made with new leaves not expanded yet. Brahea dulcis in flower. Every two weeks, from July to July42 individuals were observed. Range fortnight New leaf 4. He works for the local community to protect the plants. To explore which variables could explain leaf production per plant, we used a generalized linear model GLM that had the leaf production rate of each individual as the response variable, and plant height, height squared, the number of suckers and number of reproductive structures as explanatory variables.

In addition, there are mixed populations in Mexico with both “varieties” present. He also found that the number of leaves per tree is higher in dry than in wet habitats.

World Resources Institute; The effect of Maya traditional harvesting on the leaf production, and demographic parameters of Sabal palm in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. It should be noted that the size of the sample was different for each stage, as it depended on flower and fruit production in the sample of plants.
