Research output: Book/ReportBookAcademic


This volume 6 of the series Studies on Tropical Andean Ecosystems, contains the results of the Colombian Western Cordillera around latitude 5° N. The fieldwork was realized in 1983. The transect consists of two parts, the first between 500 m and 2150 m altitude located slightly South of 5° N, at the latitude of San José del Palmar, and the other slightly North of 5° N, at the latitude of Santuario and the Tatamá massif, between 2150 and 4200 m altitude. The total transect was therefore named: "The Tatamá transect".
