    Abstract

    During 1993 a study was carried out in the Bladen Nature Reserve, which lies in the Maya Mountains of the Toledo District of Belize. Eight main vegetation types were distinguished during two field trips. A total of 24 detailed vegetation records were made in the Reserve, and approximately 300 plant specimens were identified. A total of 218 flowering plant species were reported, representing 70 families, in addition to nine fern species. Astrocaryum mexicananum and Cecropia sp. were the only plants recorded from more than three community types. A small number of plants represent new records for Belize. Three species appeared to be certainly new to Belize, and perhaps new to science.
