Las actividades de fitorremediación a través de hu-medales artificiales, contribuyen con la depuración de aguas residuales mediante procesos biológicos y físicos. En la Reserva El Malmo (Tunja, Boyacá, Co-lombia) no existe un mecanismo de captación para disponer las aguas residuales domésticas vereda-les. Las aguas de desecho son vertidas al ecosis...

Project (1)
Goal: Páramos are the most biodiverse high-altitude ecosystem and a main source of water for millions of people in Northern Andean countries. They are also socio-ecological systems shaped by human interactions, including crop cultivation and grazing. This is an interdisciplinary UK-Colombia project that aims to: (1) establish how plant and habitat diversity within the Páramo contributes to water regulation (2) identify and quantify how crop and livestock farmers, engage with and (positively and/or negatively) affect the Páramo; (3) inform the debate among Colombian stakeholders by providing a better understanding of Páramo functioning, and so enabling sustainable and conflict-free solutions. As one of the partners of this NERC-AHRC funded project, we aim to establish how plant and habitat diversity within the páramos contributes to water regulation via direct storage in vegetation and necromass, considering both covers subject to cultural practices and natural vegetation. The project acronym is 'PARAGUAS', meaning umbrella in Spanish, and standing for PARAmo + AGUA (=water) + Society.
