A review of what has been learned in 25 years of exploring temperate zones in Mexico. The talk will begin on the scope and significance of the Mexican flora and branch out to emphasize specific plant groups and their associated communities such as pine-oak, woody lilies, bulbs, perennials, and flowering shrubs. Interlaced in these discussion will be comments on the habitat niches that these plants occupy and why.
