Publications

To keep record of our processes, research, learning and creative results to share with others and reach out to broader audiences is what our art and nature publications seek as great complements to our programs.

Con/vivir: Art and Ecology in Education

Reflections, experiences and comprehensive methodologies on art, education, mediation and ecology are connected in this collaborative book edited by Fundación Mar Adentro, which reveals corporeal knowledge localized in territory and time. An invitation to coexist, dialogue and promote teaching-learning spaces that reveal the indissoluble connection with the ecosystems of which we are a part and the complementarity between nature, culture and territory.

Fostering art-science collaborations to tackle environmental challenges

An international team of researchers (Catalina Valdés, Carla Pinochet, Fernanda Oyarzún, Nélida Pohl, and Paul Merchant), supported by University of Bristol and Fundación Mar Adentro, undertook a mapping study of art-science collaborations in Chile, with a particular focus on projects that address ecological challenges. The team found many examples of effective and exciting practices in this field, as well as significant obstacles in terms of financial support and dissemination of outcomes. This report highlights ways in which public and private funders, in Chile and globally, can better support art-science collaborations and in turn help to more holistically address the climate crisis.

Advanced canopy regeneration: an unrecognized mechanism of forest dynamics

(Español) En esta investigación se analizaron los hábitos epífitos de algunas especies arbóreas que son capaces de regenerar en el dosel del bosque. De los 99 árboles muestreados en Bosque Pehuén, se encontró que el 21% de estos tenían plántulas o brinzales en sus copas. Cabe destacar, que en árboles de gran tamaño (con DAP>= 1 m), la probabilidad de encontrar regeneración de otros árboles sobre su copa es casi de un 100% . El individuo más grande establecido en el dosel, tenía 2,5 metros de altura y 59 años, el que fue encontrado a una altura de 15 metros sobre el tronco principal de otro árbol y correspondía a un pequeño coihue (Nothofagus dombeyi). Otro hallazgo interesante correspondió a un Raulí (Nothofagus aplina) de 114 años . De acuerdo al equipo de investigadores, estos “bonsai'' que habitan el dosel del bosque, podrían representan un mecanismo de regeneración de bosques antiguos poco intervenidos.

Bird Communities Along a Post-disturbance Successional Gradient in Andean Forest of Bosque Pehuén Park, Araucanía region, southern Chile

In this research, published by the Neotropical Ornithological Society, the presence of birds was compared from 2015 to 2019 in Bosque Pehuén (privately protected area of conservation of Fundación Mar Adentro). Along with showing a greater presence of species in the adult forest, it accounts for how the fauna changes as the forest recovers.

Confirmation of Arboreal Habits in Dromiciops gliroides: A Key Role in Chilean Temperate Rainforests

Dromiciops gliroides is a small marsupial endemic to the South American temperate rainforest and has been considered a scansorial marsupial most frequently found in the understory. Nonetheless, several authors have hypothesized that this species could be arboreal because of its ability to climb through the vegetation. However, all previous studies on D. gliroides have been conducted from the ground, with no documentation of this species’ ability to climb trees, or how high they may reach. This paper presents the first evidence of arboreal habits in D. gliroides and their functional importance for the biodiversity of forest canopies based on studies conducted by LabDosel of U.Austral Chile in Bosque Pehuen privately protected area of conservation. Published in Ecosphere.

First records of undergrowth Rhinocryptidae in the canopy of temperate forests in southern Chile

This work presents the first sightings of Rhinocryptidae (songbirds that inhabit the undergrowth) in the canopies of temperate forests in southern Chile. Camera traps were installed throughout Bosque Pehuén in six ancient coihue trees (Nothofagus dombeyi), –between 12 and 12 meters high– where three species of Rhinocryptidae were recorded (between 12 and 14 meters high): the black-throated huet-huet (Pteroptochos tarnii), the chucao tapaculo (Scelorchilus rubecula) and the Magellanic tapaculo (Scytalopus magellanicus). These were unexpected sightings, as these species are considered floor and undergrowth inhabitants. This new information indicates that the canopy might occasionally provide food, shelter and nesting sites for these birds.

Bosque Pehuén Park’s Flora: A Contribution to the Knowledge of the Andean Mountain 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, this study describes the richness, conservation status, and species composition of the vascular flora found in Bosque Pehuén (privately protected area of conservation located in the Araucanía Region) and analyzes the relationships among altitude, species richness, and growth forms. Published in BioOne.
