About this book

Brings together various studies from the paramo zone of Volcan Chiles, a mountain on the border between Ecuador and Colombia. Some contributions provide a taxonomic basis for ecological work or describe distribution patterns over an altitudinal gradient in aquatic and terrestrial organisms. Other chapters present treatments of giant rosette plant anatomy and ecophysiology, hummingbird behaviour, and the impact of burning.
