GOMEZ GARCIA, Erika; SOL SANCHEZ, Ángel; GARCIA LOPEZ, Eustolia  y  PEREZ VAZQUEZ, Arturo. Use value of the flora from Ejido Sinaloa 1st section, Cárdenas, Tabasco, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.spe14, pp.2683-2694. ISSN 2007-0934.

In Ejido Sinaloa 1st section from the municipality of Cárdenas, Tabasco, it was evaluated quantitatively the use value of useful flora, where climatic factors and soil characteristics determine a scarce vegetation. Using the snowball technique, 10 key informants were selected, to which were applied two interviews, one open and one semi-structured. The floristic data were analyzed by use value index (Uvs), which indicates the importance of a group or community has about plant species. Eight of the key informants were men and 2 women; the first provided more information about plants and their uses. 91 species were recorded, grouped in 51 botanical families. The families were Fabaceae, Rutaceae, Euphorbiaceae and Lamiaceae. 14 species with high Uvs (1.0 to 3.85) among which coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) with a value of 3.8 was obtained. The lowest values (0.05 to 0.5) were snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata Prain.) and tangerine (Citrus nobilis Andr.). Most of the species recorded correspond to medicinal plants, as they do not have a health center in the locality, so the inhabitants make use of these species, followed by those used as food, these plants reflect their importance at cultural level.
