SABOGAL, Ana  and  QUINTEROS, Yakov. Plant diversity and anthropic use in Samanga paramo (Espíndola and El Toldo Sector) and in San Juan de Cachiaco Paramo (San Juan and Totora Sectors), Ayabaca, Piura. Ecol. apl. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.1, pp.9-17. ISSN 1726-2216.

The following article compares two habitats: the Samanga and San Juan de Cachiaco paramos in the province of Ayabaca. Both paramos could be classified as subparamo. Life forms and endemism are described. At Samanga paramo a total of 67 species were registered. The most representative families were: Asteraceae, Poaceae and Ericaceae. At San Juan Paramo, 86 species were registered. The most representative families were: Asteraceae, Rosaceae, Ericaceae and Cyperaceae. San Juan paramo from is more humid and better conserved; this is reflected in the number of family and species that were found. Both paramo are threatened by grazing, but Samanga paramo is under higher anthropic pressure.

Keywords : Paramo; plants diversity; anthropic use; Ayabaca.
