Bursera, named after the Danish botanist Joachim Burser (1583-1639) is a genus with about 100 described species[1] of flowering shrubs and trees varying in size upwards to 25 m. 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 forests habitats.

A number of species from tropical Asia were once included in this genus, but are now treated in the genus Protium
