About this book

Language: Spanish

The Chongon Colonche Range (in Spanish Cordillera Chongón Colonche) is a mountain range on the central pacific coast of Ecuador, and is traditionally known as the dry forest of the Santa Elena peninsula, only having vegetation in its lower parts. This work describes 218 tree and epiphyte species from 58 families. Among the results are 7 species new to science, 31 species endemic to the western region of Ecuador, and 153 new records for Chongón Colonche and 75 for the province of Guayas. Identification keys and descriptions are provided at the level of families and species, based on morphological characteristics and field observations, as well as local names, uses, phenological records and plant-animal interrelationships.

Summary in Spanish:
Tradicionalmente la cordillera Chongón Colonche ha sido conocida como el bosque seco de la Península de Santa Elena, siendo caracterizada sólo por la vegetación presente en sus partes bajas.

La información botánica de la flora del bosque de Garúa la comuna Loma Alta, determina que el bosque húmedo de las partes altas de la cordillera Chongón Colonche sobre los 400 msnm, florísticamente se parece al bosque húmedo de las estribaciones occidentales de la cordillera de los Andes, planteando un nuevo paradigma para las cordilleras costeras del Ecuador con elementos botánicos y ecológicos como herramientas de base para su conservación y manejo.

En este trabajo se documentan 218 especies de árboles y epífitas, pertenecientes a 58 familias; este resultado comprende 7 nuevas especies para la ciencia, 31 endémicas de la región occidental del Ecuador, entre los nuevos registros 153 para la cordillera Chongón Colonche y 75 para la provincia del Guayas.

Claves de identificación y descripciones son provistas a nivel de familias y especies, basadas en características morfológicas y observaciones en campo, además de nombres locales, usos, registros fenológicos e interelaciones planta-animal.
