About this book

Language: Spanish

This report presents the findings of a 2003 biological expedition to a remote, little-explored area of the Venezuelan Amazon at the confluence of the Orinoco and Ventuari Rivers. The survey, conducted by the Center for Applied Biodiversity Science, discovered extremely high levels of biodiversity, with more than 350 species of plants and 245 species of fishes. It also found alarming threats from illegal mining and environmental degradation.
