University of Amsterdam (NL) - Páramo Vegetation Research, Chingaza - Cruz Verde - Monserrate -Guasca, Colombia
The Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) from University of Amsterdam (UvA) has been working on the Paramos of Colombia since 1970, collecting information on different aspects of plant ecology. Chingaza, Cruz Verde, Monserrate and Guasca dataset is generated from six sources. 1. A study about the vegetation of the Natural National Park Chingaza by Rangel-Ch y Ariza published in 2000. 2. A vegetation mapping study done also in the Natural National Park Chingaza by Dierrikx and Kaandorp done in 1986. 3. A study on Andean Paramo's ecology by H. Sturm and O. Rangel done in 1985. 4. A study on the phytosociological analysis of paramo vegetation by R. Sanchez and O. Rangel in 1990. 5. A study of limit vegetation ecology done by M.L. Becking and J.J. Smeets in 1989 part of the ECOANDES project. 6. A study on the description of paramo vegetation communities by O. Vargas and D. Rivera in 1991. All studies provide information on the occurrence and location of 13949 plant species from the Paramo in this area collected in 631 releves. For the purpose of the GBIF data-publishing, vegetation releve data were converted into species occurrence data.
Purpose 1: Data in TurboVeg Purpose 2: data converted to species occurrence. Data repatriation to Colombia to be used in actual research.
