Chamaedorea elegans Mart. is a species that belongs to the Palmae family, which has been collected and cultivated in Mexico with ornamental aim. Because of the economic importance that this species has in the Veracruz State, it was planned to identify the environmental factors that influence its geographical distribution with the purpose of supporting the planning of its cultivation and conservation. The relationships between the geographical distribution of C. elegans and selected environmental variables were studied using generalized lineal models of binomial type. The statistical analysis indicate that of the seven selected variables, the mean annual temperature, the mean annual precipitation, the surface drainage and the landform influence its distribution (P£0.05). Considering the variables that had statistical significance and by means of the geographical information system “Bioclimas” it was determined that the potential distribution of this species covers 72 % of the surface of the Veracruz State.
