New guides to vegetation and habitat restoration in Peru, produced by Kew and its partners
Promoting conservation, sustainable use and restoration of degraded areas in one of the driest places on earth
01 Mar 2011
Guide to plants and vegetation of Ica
Successful habitat restoration demands an in-depth understanding of the flora of the region, of effective propagation and planting techniques, and of the relationship between local people and plants.
Following in-depth studies, Kew and its local partners have launched the first guide to the vegetation of the region, and a guide to appropriate habitat restoration techniques.
These are now being distributed to local schools and universities, government organisations and communities. An ongoing tree planting programme, sustained with the help of tree nurseries and community engagement initiatives established by the project, is continuing to restore crucial habitats in this arid region.
