University of Amsterdam (NL) - Páramo vegetation research, Santa Marta and Perijá, Colombia

Última versión Publicado por University of Amsterdam / IBED en Jun 18, 2019 University of Amsterdam / IBED

The Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED) from University of Amsterdam (UvA) has been working on the Paramos of Colombia since 1970, collecting information on different aspects of plant ecology. The Santa Marta and Perijá paramo complex dataset is generated from five sources. 1. A study on the vegetation of tropical ecosystems, in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, particularly in the sector Buritaca - La Cumbre, by A. Cleef and O. Rangel in 1984 (in van der Hammen and Ruiz, 1984). 2. A study on Andean Paramo's ecology by H. Sturm and O. Rangel done in 1985. 3. Field data from professor Antoine Cleef derived from the ECOANDES project) in 1984 4. A study about the paramo vegetation in the north of Colombia (Sierra nevada de Santa Marta and Serrania Perija) by J.H. Pinto-Zarate and O. Rangel-Ch in 2010. 5. A study about the high mountain vegetation of Perija, done by O. Rangel-Ch and H. Arrellano-P in 2007. All studies provide information on the occurrence and location of 1506 plant species from the Paramo in this area sampled in 91 releves. For the purpose of the GBIF data-publishing, vegetation releve data were converted into species occurrence data.

Cobertura Geográfica

Santa Marta is a mountain range located in the north of Colombia (Magdalena province), which is isolated from the rest of the Andes. It is the highest seaboard mountain system of the world, and reaches 5775 meters above sea level and the distance from the Caribbean sea is only 42 km. The surface covers 17000 km2. The Perijá massif goes along the limit between Colombia and Venezuela (Norte de Santander, Cesar, and Guajira provinces). It covers a surface of 2952 km2, with a extension of 310km. The highest point is found at 3750 meters above sea level. The páramo and forest vegetation similarities with Santa Marta suggest a past corridor and biological flux between both mountain ranges.

Descripción del Área de Estudio The studies were done in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta - SNSM which covers the provinces of Magdalena, Cesar and La Guajira, particularly in the north side of the mountain complex following the transect between Buritaca - La Cumbre. Also the south side was studied in the area of San Sebastian de Rabago. The paramo in the SNSM covers an altitudinal range between 3300m.a.s.l. up to 5100m.a.s.l, covering zonal and azonal vegetation in the subparamo, grassparamo and superparamo. In the Serrania del Perija, the paramos studied are located in an area of 4500ha in the provinces of Cesar and La Guajira. And the paramo is located between 3100m.a.s.l and 3500m.a.s.l. Only the subparamo and grassparamo are present, and there is no superparamo bioma in the Perija area. The data was collected between 1976 and 2006.
Descripción del Diseño The method used for paramo vegetation sampling was based on the Braun-Blanquet or Zürich-Montpellier schools which take the relevé as the main sampling unit. The releves were made of zonal and azonal paramo vegetation. The Braun-Blanquet method is based on dominant species that are grouped in associations and then at a higher level in alliances. This is the standard methodology used in Europe, South Africa, United States, Japan and in the world in general. One of the final goals of the methodology mainly in Europe is to get to nature conservation, which is also the goal in the Colombian paramos.

Métodos de Muestreo

The vegetation sampling was done by the relevé method following the Braun-Blanquet principles. The relevé is a list of the plants in a delimited plot of vegetation, with information on species cover and on substrate and other abiotic features in the plot to make as complete as possible description in terms of community composition. Different releves were done at different altitudes in the Paramo. The community vegetation releve data were converted into species occurrence data.

Área de Estudio In the SNSM the sampling sites on the north side included the Cerro Buritaca, Cuchilla Guine, Cuchilla La Cimarrona, La Cumbre. And on the south side San Sebatian de Rabago, Duriameina, Balcon de Bellavista and La Perdida lagoon. The floristic and structural characterization of the vegetation in the high mountians (paramo) of the Serrania de Perija included the localities of Cerro Pintao, El Avion-Casa de Vidrio, San Jose de Oriente, Sabana Rubia, Cerro Tres Tetas, Cuchilla Yipumo.
Control de Calidad The data stored in TurboVeg was checked to identify errors in the information or gaps needed to be filled. The two main fields identified to be completed were the georeference data (including precision) and the validation of the taxonomy of each species. The georeference information still needs to be completed.

Descripción de la metodología paso a paso:

  1. Releve data was stored in the software TurboVeg and then exported into species occurrence data. The species list used in TurboVeg was checked by an expert to confirm the valid taxonomy (taking into account taxonomy changes, synonyms, etc)(Guido van Reenen, paramo species list). This list was cross-checked with The Plant List (http://www.theplantlist.org/), for the period July 2011 until February 2013 (during this time frame the names where the accepted). All the records are still lacking a georeference with its precision estimation. Also the specific habitat indication needs to be done. But there is a good indication of the locality in the remarks section of the data.
