Wikipedia Abstract

Bursera, named after the Danish botanist Joachim Burser (1583-1639), is a genus with about 100 described species of flowering shrubs and trees varying in size up to 25 m (82 ft) high. They are native (often for many species endemic) to the Americas, from the southern United States south through to northern Argentina, in tropical and warm temperate forest habitats. A number of species from tropical Asia were once included in this genus, but are now treated in the genus Protium.
