Abstract

Se estudió la flora vascular de la Meseta de San Felipe, una localidad importante dentro del núcleo ofiolítico de la provincia Camagüey, para propósitos de conservación. Se registraron 585 taxones infragenéricos, principalmente de Magnoliophyta, de los cuales 97 son endemismos, en su mayoría de amplia distribución. Se hallaron 19 especies que constituyen los primeros registros, algunos de ellas con importancia fitogeográfica, a las que se le propone la categoría de amenaza En Peligro Crítico (CR), de interés provincial. Estas especies, así como las que se consideran en Peligro Crítico y En Peligro (EN) se identifican como objetos de conservación priorizados. Se considera que la conservación de la flora endémica y amenazada en la meseta tiene que ser in situ. For conservation purposes, the vascular flora of San Felipe table-land, an important locality within ophiolitic outcrup of Camagüey province was studied. A total of 585 infrageneric taxa were recorded, mainly of Magnoliophyta, 97 of which are endemism, most of them with a large distribution range; 19 species are new records, some of them with phytogeographic significance, for which Critically endangered (CR) category of provincial interest is proposed. These species, as well as those considered Critically endangered (CR) and Endangered (EN) are identified as priority conservation objects. The conservation of endemic and threatened flora on the table-land has to be in situ.
