FLORES OLVERA, Ma. Hilda e LINDIG-CISNEROS, Roberto. The List of common and botanical names of trees and shrubs suitable for restoration of the woods of the Republic by Fernando Altamirano and José Ramírez, more than 110 years after its publication. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2005, vol.76, n.1, pp. 11-35. ISSN 1870-3453.
Because of the importance of the list of plant species for repopulating the forests of the Mexican Republic, first published by Altamirano and Ramírez 111 years ago, and the difficulty to access it, a list is presented considering current trends in ecological restoration, and corrected scientific names were added to facilitate its use. To improve the utility of the list some information such like if the species are native or introduced, their uses and propagation methods is provided. The authors provide 281 common names that represent 259 species of 72 families of which 231 species are angiosperms and 28 gymnosperms. Most of the genera are represented by one species and only nine genera are represented by four or more species: Pinus (19 species), Quercus (11 species), Cordia and Tabebuia (5 species each) and Annona, Bursera, Caesalpinia, Juniperus and Yucca (4 species each). The front and last pages are presented as originally published.
