Abstract

Prosopis alpataco  Phil. (Fabaceae, Mimosoideae) is a native woody species from the arid region. It is normally found in the central Monte desert, Argentina (Vega Riveros et al. 2011; Catalano et al. 2008; Villagra and Roig 2002; Kiesling 1994) where great part of Patagonia steppe is included. It is commonly known as “alpataco”, quechua word that means “tree with subterraneous branches”.
