Site Type: Field Site
Description: Yapu, located in the Colombian Vaupes, is composed of large patches of nutrient–poor Spodosols intermixed with stretches of Oxisols covered by a dense upland forest and large patches of Amazon caatinga (found on the Spodosols). The Vaupes site is populated by indigenous Amazonians who practice traditional long–fallow swidden cultivation based on bitter manioc at very low population densities.
