Abstract

Study analyzes the transformation of forest in part of the Eastern Colombian Andes through the perspective of landscape ecology, with remote sensing, GIS, and fieldwork. A larger-scale analysis also is made of the Middle Chicamocha Watershed. Figures are given on how much of original forests remain, on forest types, and also on the many different farming systems. AA. found the original land cover of the sub-Andean dry forests had been almost completely replaced by shrublands, pastures, crops, and severely degraded areas. - (SLD)
