Tropical Andes macrogroup ecosystem extent

by Jose Valdez

This dataset focuses on the Tropical Andes region of Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, and Bolivia. We demonstrate indicators in the Tropical Andes using both potential (pre-industrial) and recent (~2010) distribution maps of terrestrial ecosystem types. We measure long-term ecosystem loss, representation of ecosystem types within current protected areas, and quantify the additional representation offered by protecting Key Biodiversity Areas. The mapped p ...(continue reading)

Natural terrestrial ecosystem types were defined at the macrogroup level of the International Vegetation Classification (IVC) for both “potential” (i.e., pre-industrial land use) and “recent” distribution for IVC macrogroups. The “potential distribution” includes biophysical conditions where each type might occur today had there not been any prior intensive human intervention (i.e., since circa 1500). “Recent” distribution then accounts for those areas of intensive intervention and conversion, as of approximately 2010. The long term loss in extent for each ecosystem type was calculated by determining the percentage loss between potential and current extent. The proportions of each macrogroup (recent distributions) occurring within the World Database of Proteaced Areas (WDPA) was calculated. We then calculated the additional proportions of each IVC macrogroup that could be secured through identified Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs). For applications to continental or global analysis, we rolled up results to the IVC formation level.
