Description: Much of the Southeastern region of Columbia is part of western Amazonia. The Vaupes region, located in the area near the Northwest region of the Brazilian state of Amazonas, is an LBA-ECO study area.
The vegetation includes dense upland forest and large patches of Amazon caatinga (found on the Spodosols). The soil contains large patches of nutrient-poor Spodosols intermixed with stretches of Oxisols.
Previously collected field data from upland forest and swidden agricultural areas will be used for modeling purposes.
