Although the upper basin of Venezuela?s Paragua River is in almost pristine condition, little is known about the region?s biological diversity. This volume presents the findings of a biological expedition that sought information about the use of national resources, the local population, and the state of conservation in the area. Researchers discovered several species new to science and offered conservation recommendations. Results of the survey also indicated a reduction of traditional activities, such as hunting and fishing, by the indigenous population and the progressive incorporation of mining activity.
Josefa Celsa Senaris and Carlos A. Lasso are researchers at the Fundacion La Salle de Ciencias Naturales in Venezuela. Ana Liz Flores is executive director of Conservation International - Venezuela.
