Distribution of Aguaje palm swamps in the Madre de Dios River basin

Module by: John Janovec. E-mail the author

Figure 1: As part of Los Amigos Botany, we have initiated the Aguajal Project to study the ecology, diversity, distribution, economic potential, and sustainable use/management of the Aguaje palm (Mauritia flexuosa) and its ecosystem. This output image from GIS depicts the distribution of Aguaje palm swamps in the Madre de Dios River basin. Mathias Tobler generated this image by extracting Aguaje palm swamps from Landsat satellite imagery. We are using this map in conjunction with other geospatial data and imagery to guide us in our field work and analysis of this wetland ecosystem. See the Aguajal Project photographic essay for more information about this ecosystem.
