Résumé
The flora of the Caatinga biome is still poorly known and surveyed. Studies combining floristic surveys and bioinformatic tools in conservation priority areas such as the Seridó ecological station reserve - ESEC Seridó, can contribute significantly to the knowledge, conservation and use of native species. This study aims to elaborate a checklist of all trees in the study area and gather information about their uses. With this data, we aim to build an eFlora of native trees in ESEC-Seridó, including etnobotanical data and an interactive key for all species treated. We researched data in herbarium databases, literature, herbarium collections, fieldwork and we used the XPER software to build an interactive key. The survey listed 38 species and 17 families for the study area. According to the literature, among these species 12 (34.2%) are used as human food, 32 (84.2%) are used as animal food, 32 (84.2%) are used as timber, 31 (81.6%) are used as medicine, 27 (71.0%) are used as technological and energy sources, 26 (68.4%) are used for craft manufacturing and 26 (68.4%) are used for both rural and urban gardening and landscaping. We expect to document the potential uses of studied native flora, highlighting the biodiversity of the Caatinga biome to the scientific and general community.
