The mountain range of Huautla is located south of the state of Morelos. In 1999 it was declared as Biosphere Reserve mountain range of Huautla (Rebiosh), by the presence of the tropical dry forest (SBC). Within the reserve are rural communities whose common endowment was affected by the decree of the Rebiosh. The people have used SBC plant resources, reflected in knowledge of this type of vegetation, use and management of most plant and animal species. The objective of this research was to identify tree species purpose to meet those high use value, and identify traditional knowledge in the conscious management of resources floristic Rebiosh. These mi-structured to me et the use of species and to calculate the index of cultural value (IC) of tree species interviews were conducted, samples were also made in the management systems with agroforestry technologies to calculate the index of importance value (VI) and determine the selection of exploited species. IC found higher values for: Eysenhardtia polystachia with 90%, 82% Mimosa benthamii, Haematoxilum brasiletto with 68% and 57% Crescentia alata. To VI they highlighted: Mimosa benthamii with 114% and 50% Crescentia alata, among others. We conclude that the people of Ajuchitlan been selected tree species for their use, creating agroforestry as a sustainable strategy.
