Description

(article is in Spanish)

  • Se plantaron árboles nativas dentro de una plantación de Pinus patula, en claras y bajo del dosel del pino.
  • Para Alnus acuminata, Cedrela montana, Tabebuia chrysantha y Cupana sp. no había preferencia de condición especifica.
  • Heliocarpus americanus, Isertia laevisy Myrica pubescens prefieron la protección de un dosel protector, mientras Cinchona officinalisy Piptocoma discolor prefieron los claros.
  • Se concluyen que todos los arboles (menos Cinchona officinalis) crecen bien dentro de la plantación de pino y que ofrece un buen método para lograr  la reforestación con especies nativas.

  • In this study in the montane Andes of Ecuador, researchers planted native trees inside clearings and under the canopy of a Pinus patula plantation.
  • For Alnus acuminata, Cedrela montana, Tabebuia chrysantha and Cupana sp., there was no preference for clearing / understory condition.
  • Heliocarpus americanus, Isertia laevisy Myrica pubescens preferred growing in the understory, while Cinchona officinalisy Piptocoma discolor preferred clearings.
  • Author concludes that all of the trees in the study (minus Cinchona officinalis) grow well among pine plantations and that plantation systems offer potential for reforestation facilitation.
