Volume 5(2) is the latest volume of Flora Mesomericana, the first major regional flora ever written in Spanish. The Flora describes, for the first time, all the vascular plants growing in the southeasternmost states of Mexico, including the Yucatan Peninsula, and all the Central American republics. Hundreds of botanists specializing in tropical taxonomy from around the world are compiling and synthesizing data on the plants of this ecologically diverse region for this project. Covered in this volume is the family Asteraceae, with 282 genera and 1072 species.
