Inventory of natural regeneration of forest species of high commercial value in the department of Choco, Colombia

Objective: To know and determine the rate of natural regeneration of seven forest species of Choco department, which serves as a basis for the development of management plans to ensure the sustainability of forest species. Methodology: 50x50 plots were established. Within each of these sub-plots, circular plots of 15 m radius they were located and following the diagonals of the first plot 12 sub 2x2 meter plots were established. Results: In this study it was determined that the species with the highest rate of natural regeneration are the species D. oleifera (37,222) and H. oblongifolia (37,757), which allow the permanence of individuals in time and space. Conclusions: In this study a high abundance in natural regeneration for three forest species with high commercial value for the department of Choco that are located in the red books of threatened species found. High values ​​of IRN registered ensure that the species can survive and settle in time and space ensuring the sustainability of the forest. In this study it can be concluded that micro - climates like shadow and light have an influence on the natural regeneration of forest species. Read more
