Aparte del prologo escrito por Dubán Canal: "El presente documento constituye un aporte invaluable de 9 mujeres y 6 hombres colombianos quienes dedican sus esfuerzos al conocimiento de los atributos de los bosques andinos del país. Los estudios presentados son tan diversos como los Andes mismos e incluyen aspectos relacionados con el origen de la d...

Los bosques urbanos prestan diferentes servicios ecosistémicos, tales como la remoción de contaminantes atmosféricos, la captura de carbono, la regulación hídrica y microclimática, y la oferta de hábitat para la fauna silvestre. Esto mejora la calidad ambiental y el bienestar de la población. En este estudio se analizó la estructura del bosque urba...

This book presents a selection of plant species representative from the andean forests, found in the Claro river basin in Villamaría Municipality (Caldas, Colombia). The book includes an overview of the environmental conditions in the zone; the methodology and results of the floristic characterization; a total of 301 vascular species (152 with morp...
Article
Thermal anomalies in built environments, known as Urban Heat Islands (UHI), are studied with satellite-derived data. However, this information is insufficient to examine regions such as the Aburra Valley, where the city of Medellin is located. In this valley, atmospheric interferences are common and the rugged terrain influences the amount of solar...

La importancia de las zonas de ribera en la integridad del ecosistema fluvial y terrestre que lo rodea es fundamental, por lo que determinar su calidad ecológica y ambiental es cada vez más relevante. El índice de calidad del bosque de ribera (QBR) fue estudiado con el fin de aplicarlo en la cuenca de un río interandino tropical. Dado que el QBR fu...

The importance of riparian buffers in the integrity of the aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems that surround a river is critical, then determining their ecological and environmental quality is becoming increasingly important. The riparian forest quality (QBR) index was studied in order to use it in the basin of an inter-andean tropical river. Since...

It is estimated that around 30.000 homes have no access to electricity in Antioquia. The use of pico-hydropower systems is an alternative for rural communities where a connection to the power grid is nor economically viable. This paper discusses the identification and prioritization of potential sites for installing of pico-hydropower turbines in A...

El objetivo del estudio fue evaluar la capacidad de la vegetación para mitigar el ruido en el valle de Aburrá. La metodología comprendió dos fases: la primera consistió en la revisión de información secundaria relacionada con dicha función de la vegetación, lo que permitió obtener las bases conceptuales para el posterior desarrollo experimental. En...

Ecological regions, or ecoregions, are areas that exhibit “relative homogeneity in ecosystems”. The principal objective of this research was to determine if and how landscape structure (quantified by landscape pattern metrics) may be related to ecoregions defined using Omernik’s approach to ecoregionalization. Nine key landscape pattern metrics (nu...

The objective of the study was to assess the capacity of vegetation to reduce the noise in the Aburrá valley. The methodology comprised two phases: the first was the revision of secondary information related to the role of vegetation and to obtain the conceptual bases for further experimental development. The second phase was the measurement of noi...

This paper describes the effects of mercury on some aquatic plants of the tropics and their habitats. Additionally, a protocol for toxicity tests in duckweed (Lemna minor) is recommended, and the results of preliminary tests with salts of mercury under laboratory conditions are given. It was found that mercury is in different toxicity and bioavaila...
