Botanical exploration of the Central-South
region in Peru

Contributors: Rosa Ortiz, Rodolfo Vásquez, and Henk van der Werff

During June-July 2003, botanists from the Missouri Botanical Garden together with Peruvian colleagues, carried out a field trip in the Yanachaga-Chemillen National Park and surrounding areas in Southern-Central Peru ( Fig. 1). The trip was carried out within the botanical inventory program implemented as part of the "Floristic Diversity of the Protected Natural Areas in Center and Southern Peru" project. The project is directed by in-home garden Curator Rodolfo Vásquez, with financial support of the Taylor Foundation.
