Ecology

Habitat

Habitat and Ecology

Habitat and Ecology

Pinus teocote occurs in various habitats, most commonly in rather open forest or woodland associated with Quercus spp., on relatively dry sites with shallow soils. Its altitudinal range is (1,000-)1,500-3,000(-3,300) m a.s.l., a few collections are recorded from 700-800 m but these may be based on incorrect estimates. This species often occupies dry ridges, sometimes on calcareous outcrops. Annual precipitation is usually moderate, from 500-1,000 mm, but much higher in parts of the central highlands of Chiapas, where it is growing in broad-leaved forest dominated by Liquidambar and Styrax. Pinus teocote occurs with a number of other pines in various parts of its range, the most common of which are from N to S: P. arizonica, P. engelmannii, P. durangensis, P. leiophylla, P. montezumae, P. oocarpa, and P. patula.
