Amacayacu

 

Overview

The Amacayacu site is located at the Amacayacu National Natural Park, Colombian Amazonia. The site was established on Tertiary sedimentary plains (Pebas Formation), characterised by a hilly and moderated dissected topography.

As of June 2008, the state of advance in the establishment of the plot is as follows:

  • 20 ha with all trees (dbh > 10 cm) mapped, tagged, and measured.
  • 15 ha with all treelets (1 cm < dbh < 10 cm) mapped, tagged, and measured.
  • 15 ha with all trees (dbh > 10 cm) collected, and in process of identification.
  • 2 ha with all treelets (1 cm < dbh < 10 cm) collected, and in process of identification.

At the end of 2008, the entire plot (25 ha) was completed and all trees (dbh > 10 cm) were mapped, tagged, and measured. At least 20 ha also have all trees (dbh > 10 cm) collected and identified, plus the other 2 ha considering treelets. The remaining 10 ha of treelets to be mapped, tagged, measured, and collected were surveyed in 2009.
