Report on the current vegetation of an archaeological site of the Chalchihuites civilization and its surroundings, neighboring the city of Durango, Mexican Republic
In the summer of 1958, the vegetation of two hills, their surroundings and the depression that connects them, was studied, which form the site of a concentration of relatively large ancient dwellings of an extinct pre-Hispanic civilization, on the northern periphery of the Mesoamerican complex of central Mexico. Archaeologists at the Southern Illinois University (S.I.U.) Museum have been researching this civilization, Chalchihuites, for nearly a decade. The object of this plant study provided the archaeologists with supplementary information concerning the identification of plants and plant communities existing at this site (Schroeder Site) and in the surrounding terrain.
