Rosas Dominicana

The upcoming fight against Orlando Pino is a crucial one for Rosa. The WBA minimum champion needs to win in order to stay relevant in the division.

Natural recruitment in palo de rosa is slow and requires stable habitat conditions and the benefit of periodic natural disturbances (e.g., hurricanes). Federal and territorial conservation efforts on private lands are achieving positive results but remain limited.

The Dominican Republic has a number of national symbols that represent the country’s history and culture. These include baseball, the National Flag, and the Bayahibe rose. These symbols are a source of pride for the people of the Dominican Republic and serve as a reminder of the country’s rich history and traditions.

The bayahibe rose is a rare cactus flower that grows only in the Dominican Republic. It was first discovered in 1977 by French botanist Henri Alain Liogier. He named it quisqueyana, a tribute to the Dominican Republic, also known as Quisqueya. The flower is a symbol of the country’s heritage and is protected by law.

Santa Rosa de Lima was born on April 20, 1586, in Lima to Gaspar Flores and Maria de Oliva. Her family was poor, but she was devoted to her religion. She often fasted and performed severe penances. She was also a great poet and spent her life praising the Lord. Her motto was Dios, Patria, Libertad, or God, Fatherland, Liberty.

The Bayahibe rose (Leuenbergeria quisqueyana) is a bright pink flower and was chosen as the Dominican Republic’s national flower in 2011. The bloom symbolizes beauty, strength, and patriotism.

The cactus is native to the tropical, humid climate of the Dominican Republic and does well in USDA hardiness zones 9-11. It can grow outdoors year-round in the warm, sunny conditions of these regions.

It’s a popular herbal preparation in the Dominican Republic and is used in teas, bebedizos, and aromatic baths. Other types of traditional Dominican mixtures that combine plant parts or extracts with culinary spices and non-plant ingredients are also commonly used in the country, such as botellas.

La rosa de Bayahibe, también conocida como Leuenbergeria quisqueyana (ltima edición de 2013), fue declarada flor nacional de la Repblica Dominicana por ley 146-11. Y el Jardin Botanico Nacional se está emprendedorando para protegerla.

Habitat for this species includes dry forests of the southern part of the island of Hispaniola. The hermaphrodite flowers appear for a short period at the beginning of the rainy season, and the fruits ripen in November.

Rosas dominicana is known from multiple (66) natural subpopulations throughout its geographic range, representing 14 distinct populations. However, the population structure of these populations is fragmented and patchy with low recruitment. As a result, the resiliency of these populations is limited. The fragmentation of habitat due to human activities such as infrastructure development, maintenance of power lines and associated rights-of-way, logging, rock quarries, grazing by cattle, and agriculture is a primary threat. Additionally, hurricanes and invasive plant species are also threats. In addition, the lack of connectivity between these fragmented populations limits their resiliency.

In 1994, the species was found in 16 populations (now defined as subpopulations). A recent survey effort has identified additional individuals and locations of palo de rosa.

Our current understanding of palo de rosa population dynamics indicates that the species is a late-successional species whose saplings are most likely to develop in open canopy conditions with frequent natural disturbance (i.e., tropical storms or hurricanes). As such, a steady source of seeds is necessary to maintain the species’ status in the wild.

Federal and Territorial conservation efforts have reduced the risk of extinction for palo de rosa, although delisting criterion 1 is not yet met. While the GCF population is largely under protection, many of its individuals occur on private lands and the Cambalache and Maricao Commonwealth Forests. Consequently, the survival of these populations depends on partnerships between the Service and private landowners to establish landscape planning and management strategies that will allow for cross-pollination and recruitment.
