Abstract

In the Highlands of Ecuador, the vertical limits of agriculture and intensification of livestock production have been expanded upward to the low paramos. These trends, which result from population pressure and agrarian reform, place environmental stress on this zone (3 200 m-3 600 m above sea level). - (DWG)
