Resumen: "We studied whether agrobiodiversity in home gardens reflects the cultural landscapesthat embed them. We compared floristic composition, biomass and cover of trees inhome gardens between the cultural landscapes on mountain slopes (MSL), small hills(SHL), and floodplains (FPL) in a segment of the Grijalva-Usumacinta watershed in thetropical lowlands of Tabasco, Mexico. We characterized the cultural landscapes basedon information obtained through questionnaires, identified species and measured treeheight and diameter at breast height (DBH) in random samples of home gardens fromtwo localities in each case. The cultural landscapes showed distinct land usecombinations: MSL comprised subsistence agriculture, pasturelands and forests"
