About this book

In 1993 and 1994, two Rapid Assessment Programme teams conducted biological surveys in the Cordilla del Condor between Ecuador and Peru, one of the largest intact regions of Andean lower montane forest. This book presents the results of their surveys, which demonstrates a very high plant species diversity.
