          Abstract

          Se presenta una lista de 239 morfoespecies arbóreas de los bosques montanos de La Escalera, Sierra de Lema, estado Bolívar, entre 1000-1530 m snm, incluyendo algunos nom­bres pemón-arekuna. El análisis florístico preliminar muestra que la familia con mayor nú­mero de taxones es Lauraceae (23) mientras que las leguminosas (14) son relativamente esca­sas. En esta laurisilva se ha encontrado un nuevo reporte paraVenezuela, seis especies nuevas para la ciencia y alto endemismo local (13,7%), pero la falta de información florística en otros bosques montanos del Macizo Guayanés no permite adelantar comparaciones.

          Translated abstract

          A check-list of 239 tree morphospecies collected in the montane forests of La Escalera, Sierra de Lema (Bolívar State) between 1000-1530 m asl, and some Pemon-Arekuna names are given. Floristic analysis reveals a remarkable richness of Lauraceae (23) but a relative scarcity of legumes (14). So far, a new record for Venezuela, six new species for science, together with a high level of local endemism (13,7%), have been found in these laurel forest. However, the lack of floristic information on other montane forests of the Guianan Massif makes it difficult to apply comparative criteria.
