Abstract

Polylepis forests in the Andes, of fragmental distribution, house a great diversity of flora species and an extraordinary and unique fauna in mountain ecosystems in altitudes above 3500 m. Studies on these forests proved the existence of more than twenty Polylepis species in the Andes. As these forests are within a protected area, with minimal human impact, we must ask whether there is any relationship between the retreat of glaciers and the movement of the limit of Polylepis forests in the Quillcay basin. This study tries to answer these questions. - (EN)
