Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Styracaceae are represented in Peru by two genera and approximately 20 species (Brako & Zarucchi, 1993; Ulloa Ulloa et al., 2004), mostly shrubs and trees. Here we recognize three endemic species in the genus Styrax. Endemic species are found in Very Humid Montane Forests region, between 2200 and 2800 m elevation. These endemic species have been recorded within Peru's protected areas system.
