About this book

Language: Spanish

This book is the result of four years of floristic surveys in the La Calera Natural Defense Reserve (RNDLC) in Argentina, as part of an environmental diagnosis carried out within the framework of the "Management as a Tool for Watershed Recovery" project. It was initially conceived as a guide for internal use by the El Cuenco-Equipo Ambiental group, however, it was recognized that it could be of value to other institutions that had access to the Reserve, as a pedagogical tool for students from neighbouring schools, and as a quick field identification guide of species from the Serrano and Espinal Forest. This book provides a brief description of the environments and flora of the RNDLC, as well as a compilation of some of the species found, laid out in 136 species profiles where ecological, ecophysiological, anatomical aspects and potential ethnobotanical uses are described. It is the wish of the authors that this book fulfils a social purpose, that it manages to contribute to the valuation of the natural resources of a reserve that fulfils the role of regulating innumerable ecosystem services, often invisible to society, but which are essential to improve the quality of life of the inhabitants living under its influence.

Summary in Spanish:
Este libro es el resultado de cuatro años de relevamientos florísticos en la Reserva Natural de la Defensa La Calera (RNDLC), como parte del diagnóstico ambiental llevado a cabo en el marco del proyecto "El Manejo como Herramienta de Recuperación de Cuencas". Se gestó inicialmente como una guía de uso interna del grupo El Cuenco-Equipo Ambiental, sin embargo se reconoció que podría tener valor para otras instituciones que tuvieran acceso a la Reserva, como herramienta pedagógica para alumnos de escuelas aledañas o como guía de reconocimiento rápido a campo de especies del Bosque Serrano y del Espinal. Este libro brinda una breve descripción de los ambientes y la flora de la RNDLC, así como una recopilación de algunas de las especies encontradas, graficadas en 136 fichas donde se describen aspectos ecológicos, ecofisiológicos, anatómicos y potenciales usos etnobotánicos. Es el deseo de los autores que este libro cumpla un fin social, que logre contribuir a la valorización de los recursos naturales de una Reserva que cumple el rol de regular innumerables servicios ecosistémicos, muchas veces invisibles para la sociedad, pero que son fundamentales para mejorar la calidad de vida de los habitantes que viven bajo su influencia.
