Plants from the north of its range tolerate several degrees of frost if they are growing in a dry sunny climate[]. This article is published under license to BioMed Central Ltd. The time from emergence of inflorescences to mature fruit production was recorded on the 42 study individuals.

In other studies, there was no plant mortality reported for other species by [ 3132 ]. Additionally, as was shown, the ecological behavior of B. Perhaps high leaf production rates in B. Stages of development of B. The substitution phenomena is common to many NTFP, caused by resource scarcity and the lower prices of some synthetic materials [ 25 ].

In addition, the rate by month was related to average monthly rainfall of the current and previous month [ 23 ], available for the period — using a simple linear regression model.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Average growth rate of the leaf petioles per individual was calculated by averaging the growth values of each petiole for example, the average growth in the first two-week period of the 6 to 17 leaves produced by each plant even though these were produced in different periods.

Solitary, to 8 inches in diameter 12 to 20 cm. He also reported a negative correlation between the number of leaves produced per year and leaf longevity. They informed us that Tlaxco is currently the main branea palm handcraft town. Tlaxco had the next-densest population, but it was dominated by juveniles, which are not useful, and by seedlings and saplings, which are not yet useful.


Recommendations for sustainable use As a first step, we propose apply in RBBM the traditional palm management practices used in Guerrero, du,cis removing suckers and vulcis grazing [ 15 ].
