Abstract:
In the present study, a general description of 5 species of Lupinus (Lupinus leptophyllus, L. montanus, L. potosinus, L. uncinatus, L. versicolor) growing on the oriental face of Tlalóc mountain in Sierra Nevada, México, is presented where growth of different populations was found under diverse ecological conditions: crop fields, areas disturbed by tree felling, natural aperture of the canopy and areas disturbed by forest fires. The distribution of the different species as well as its altitudinal range was determined through geo-referencing. The reported species were found at altitudes of 2800-3700 m above sea level growing in soils that range from loamy to sandy loam and sandy clay loam, with different soil physical and chemical characteristics at each site, which indicates that the species are growing in slightly acidic soils.
