Research on the ecology of emblematic fauna and flora species of the Serranía de las Quinchas (Magdalena Medio).

Project: Research Project

Project Details


The Serranía de las Quinchas Regional Natural Park in Puerto Boyacá-Magdalena Medio borders with a relict of tropical humid forest which in its interior presents endemic species typical of the Colombian biogeographic region.

Many of these species are in danger of extinction due to anthropogenic pressures derived from extractive and invasive activities to the ecosystem in the region and are unsustainable.

In such a way that, the need arises to be able to carry out a documentation and compilation of the ecology of emblematic species with little description and information described in literature, specifically some species of plants such as Zamia incognita, Isidodendron tripterocarpum, big-leaf mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla), Spanish cedar (Cedrela odorata) and Magnolia cespedesii, in addition to complementing information on the blue-billed curassow (Crax alberti) and the brown spider monkey (Ateles hybridus).

Therefore, the project would contribute to management plans and strategies for sustainable development in the region, such as strengthening knowledge processes for community tourism.
