To identify hotspots of plant endemism in and around the central Andean valleys of Bolivia for future conservation


The aim of the project was to identify hotspots of plant endemism in and around the central Andean valleys of Bolivia for future conservation.


1. List/Data base of as many endemic plants as possible with distribution maps

2. Six Bolivians able to identify species in six major families or groups

3. Attractive, popular field guide to selected plants with emphasis on endemics

4. Production of posters on value and conservation of selected species/habitats
