Bosque Pehuén Park’s Flora: A Contribution to the Knowledge of the Andean Montane Forests in the Araucanía Region, Chile
In Chile, most protected areas are located in the southern Andes, in mountainous landscapes at mid or high altitudes. Despite the increasing proportion of protected areas, few have detailed inventories of their biodiversity. This information is essential to define threats and develop long-term integrated conservation programs to face the effects of global change. Consequently, the objectives of this study were to describe the richness, conservation status, and species composition of the vascular flora found in Bosque Pehuén Park and analyze the relationships among altitude, species richness, and growth forms.
