Abstract

Author determines the distribution of Polylepis forest on Sajama Volcano in the western Cordillera of Bolivia using remote-sensing and GIS methods. He discusses indicators such as altitude and aspect that approximate the eco-climatological conditions for Polylepis tarapacana. A major goal is to establish the potential distribution of vegetational formations in order to ascertain the suitability of areas for possible restoration with endemic plant species. - (SLD)
