A new book by my hand, on páramo and climate change

(5 September 2014)

Recently, I had the priviledge to coordinate a project (managed by IUCN) to elaborate a state-of-knowledge report on the páramo ecosystem, especially focusing on climate change. This study, executed in collaboration with partners from Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, was recently published. The online version of this book can be downloaded here. It includes a quite complete update of all ecological knowledge on páramo, its conservation and management and the actual impact of climate change on the ecosystem. It also includes a long list of publications and analyzed the progress in research in the Andean countries and elsewhere. I hope you will enjoy this!
