Esta guía es el resultado de muchos años de trabajo en la meseta de Huaca Huasi en las Cumbres Calchaquíes, provincia de Tucumán. La zona es representativa de la Ecoregión Altoandina de Tucumán y buena parte de Catamarca y Salta, por lo que pensamos que su utilidad puede extenderse bastante más allá del área de estudio. Incluye las especies que pue...

Parastrephia lucida, known as “romero”, “tola” o “t’hola”, “chachakoa”, “tola de río”, “tola de agua”, is a medicinal plant found in large areas in the semi-arid Puna of Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Peru. It is part of the landscape called “tolar”, with other species of Parastrephia, Baccharis, and Fabiana. The “tolares” have been a very important...

Fabiana Ruiz & Pav. (Solanaceae) is a South American genus, growing especially in arid mountainous areas. In Argentina, 10 species are present in the High Andean, Pre-Puna, Puna, and Monte biogeographical regions, in addition to Patagonia. In this chapter reference is made to four Fabiana species, F. punensis, F. patagonica, F. bryoides and F. dens...

Resumen — La región reconocida geográficamente como Puna en Argentina esta subdi vidida en dos provincias fitogeográficas: Puneña y Altoandina. La provincia Puneña incluye dos subunidades, la Puna seca (precipitaciones de 100-400 mm/año) y la Puna desértica (<100 mm/año). La Puna seca es pri nci pal mente una estepa arbusti va, con Bacchari s, Fabi...

Prosopis alba (algarrobo) flours are traditional food resources from Argentina. The aim of this work was to determine the effect of particle sizes of Prosopis flour on its chemical composition and functional properties. Flours were obtained by mechanical methods (F1 to F4, >840, 840 to 500, 500 to 149 and <149 µm, respectively). F1 and F2 contain 4...

The high tropical Andes host one of the richest alpine floras of the world, with exceptionally high levels of endemism and turnover rates. Yet, little is known about the patterns and processes that structure altitudinal and latitudinal variation in plant community diversity. Herein we present the first continental-scale comparative study of plant c...

The macroinvertebrates are a vital component of freshwater ecosystems as they contribute to the process of organic matter while serving as food for other organisms such as fish and amphibians. Unfortunately, the knowledge of the aquatic diversity is poor in the high Andean systems (between 3 200 and 5 200 m.a.s.l. and rainfall below 300 mm per year...

Xanthium strumarium L., the main species of the genus Xanthium, is ubiquitously distributed. The aim of this study was to determine the cytotoxic effect of aerial organs of X. strumarium, grown in Cuba, against cancer cell lines and the isolation of compounds potentially responsible for this activity. Initially, an ethanol partitioning procedure yi...

Dihydroxychalcones as well as other metabolites synthesized via the phenylpropanoid pathway have a wide range of biological activities. Although this class of phenolic compounds is found in very large amounts in some tissues, their physiological significance remains unclear. This approach focused on the chemical analysis of Zuccagnia punctata leaf...

In South America, the mesocarp flour of Prosopis species plays a prominent role as a food resource in arid areas. The aim of this work was the characterization of the phenolic antioxidants occurring in the pod mesocarp flour of Chilean Prosopis. Samples were collected in the Copiapo, Huasco and Elqui valleys from the north of Chile. The samples of...

Fruits such as Prosopis pod have been food sources (patay, arrope, chicha or aloja) of inhabitants of arid and semi-arid lands in South America. The aims of the present study were determine some nutritional and functional properties as well as genotoxicity of flour obtained from Prosopis ripe pods that were submitted to different processing. Sucros...
