RAMIREZ-DAVILA, J. F. y PORCAYO-CAMARGO, E.. Spatial distribution study of the mistletoe (Arceuthobium sp.) in the El Nevado de Toluca, Mexico, using the SADIE method. Madera bosques [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.2, pp.93-112. ISSN 1405-0471.
The Nevado de Toluca was declared a National Park, recognizing its importance as a site for aquifer recharge, as well as the value of its natural resources. Today, however, it is the scene of a rapid depredation both human caused and natural. The mistletoe is one of the most important plant parasites group of heterophytes because they cause serious harm on other plants, which has become a problem recently because of the infestation levels of the parasite. In this study data were obtained that permit to know the spatial distribution of this parasite and maps its density in the study area; they can be used for software platforms already in place that have been tested extensively. The results of this study will permit management programs of this parasite that are broked up by reliable information, presumably leading to pretend adequate control of this problem.
