Forests and reforestation (Bosques y reforestación)

This group is attached to INTE-PUCP. It investigates anthropic activities carried out in areas surrounding protected forests, and proposes actions for their conservation, renewal and sustainable use in Peru. Plant ecology and ethnobotany are studied, linking the use of plants in their different forms, integral resource management and cultural aspects.

Coordinator: Dra. Ana Sabogal Dunin-Borkowski

Presentation

The group does research on anthropic activities carried out in areas surrounding protected forests, and proposes actions for their conservation, renewal and sustainable use in Peru.

Proposed projects consider dissemination of results, local population classification (direct beneficiaries) and artistic-cultural aspects. Research teams undertake dialogue based on the study object: nature. In this way, the team investigates the interaction between ecosystem, population and culture. Plant ecology and ethnobotany are studied, linking the use of plants in their different forms, the integral resource management and culture.

Research lines

  • The study of forest dynamics
  • The study of ecological succession
  • The study of plant associations and their variability
  • Integrated forest management
  • Forest ecosystem valuation
  • The study of the forest ecosystem goods and services and the sociocultural values associated with them
