Ecological Systems of the Amazon Basin of Peru and Bolivia: Classification and Mapping

Josse C

More than 80 ecosystems in the Amazon Basin of Peru and Bolivia are classified and mapped in this report. The map is the first in Latin America to use the same criteria, scales and field validation to illustrate the natural vegetation across the two countries, and is expected to serve as a model to future vegetation maps in the region.
