NEW RESEARCH SITES IN THE PERUVIAN AMAZON


Project Amazonas, Inc. is seeking inquiries from researchers interested in working at two new sites (Madre Selva and Paucarillo Forest Preserve) located approximately 125 air km from Iquitos, Peru. Both sites are located on the Rio Oroza, a blackwater tributary on the south side of the Amazon and are accessible only by boat. A variety of habitats are available for study at both sites, including seasonally inundated (varzea) forest, upland (terra firme) forest, swamps and forest creeks, blackwater river, and a series of canals and lagoons connecting the Rio Oroza to the Amazon itself. In the vicinity of Madre Selva many different upland successional habitats of differing ages are available for study. At the Paucarillo Forest Reserve, primary forest extends to the southern bank of the river itself, the north bank is entirely varzea forest. In addition to ecological research, there are opportunities for ethnobotanical, resource management, and sociological investigations in cooperation with the indigenous Yagua peoples.

The flora and fauna at both sites are very rich, with the diversity of habitats contributing to particularly interesting bird, fish, herptile and butterfly faunas, and to understory plant communities rich in palms, melastomes, aroids, and broad-leaved monocots. The primary forest itself is quite tall, with good concentrations of very large trees. Recent hunting pressure means that mammals and large birds are wary, but monkeys, toucans, and macaws of several species are regularly encountered and jaguars are frequently heard, particularly at the Paucarillo Forest Reserve.

The Madre Selva site is located between the Yagua Indian villages of Comendancia and Santa Ursula and encompasses 200 ha of secondary and primary forest, with more land being acquired as funding becomes available. South of the station, primary forest stretches unbroken to the Brazilian frontier (approximately 125 km). Facilities at the site include a floating station/trading post with housing for 6-8 persons, kitchen with freezer and gas stove, lab space and generator-supplied electricity. Full bathroom facilities (with running water) are available. The Paucarillo Forest Reserve site is 500 ha in size and is located upriver from the village of Santa Ursula. No further settlements of more than 2-3 families exist from this site to the headwaters of the river. Paucarillo has a main building with accommodations for 8-10 persons, a separate kitchen building and three free-standing open-sided shelters. Construction is underway on bathroom/shower facilities with associated water tower and pump. Both sites have rudimentary trail systems, and a canopy platform and walkway are tentatively planned for the Paucarillo Forest Reserve some time in the near future.

Access to both sites is by boat from Iquitos, Peru. The trip downriver to the Rio Oroza takes from 3-6 hours by relatively fast boat, with the return taking an additional 1-2 hours. Daily flights are available from Iquitos to Lima, and a direct flight from Iquitos to Miami (4 hours) is available every Saturday.

PERUVIAN GROUP SUPPORTS ASHANINKA HERITAGE AND ENVIRONMENT


Founded in 1987, the Association for the Conservation of Patrimony of Cutivireni is a Peruvian non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) whose purpose is the protection and conservation of the natural and cultural patrimony of the indigenous Ashaninka Nation. Dwelling in the valleys of the Ene and Cutivireni rivers, in the central jungle of Peru, the Ashaninka peoples' lives have been uprooted since 1981 under then-president Fernando Bellaunde's repatriation scheme, and moreso in 1989 when Shining Path rebels destroyed the Ashaninka villages, and murdered a teacher, Mario Zumaeta, and other members of the Association.

Since this period of displacement and upheaval, the ACPC has developed many programs aimed at supporting the native population. Among them, humanitarian aid, and the implementation of the sanitary center, qualification of human health technicians, technical assistance in agriculture, preliminary ethnobotanical inventory of the native community of Cutivireni, preliminary orchid inventory of the native communities of the Ene river, and developing educational programs for improving the facilitation of native teachers, especially in environmental education.

The idea that the protection of a cultural patrimony surpasses the importance of a natural one will be experienced in Peru for the first time. The Ashaninka Indians, who have always been a part of the ecosystem in this area of the Ene and Urubamba rivers, actually guarantee the protection of the fauna, flora and balance of nature in general in this unique sub-Andean area.

The main project of the NGO is to create the 330,000 hectare National Sanctuary of Cutivireni, thus giving the indigenous society an official protected status that will guarantee the intangibility of the sources and headwaters of the river basins of the Ene and Urubamba rivers; by doing so, it will be protecting the longest natural bridge in the world. Because of the great number of endemics found there, this area should be given high priority for conservation.

The active participation of the native communities in the organization of the ACPC has always been integrative. Involved in the decision making is an elected Ashaninka Council - chosen by the native community - whose goal it is to see that the interests and goals for conservation and development are heard and acted upon.

The ACPC is presently part of the Peruvian Environmental Net and has been invited to join the Latinoamerican Forestry Net. For more information on the work of the association, please contact Dr. J. Alfredo Paino, Vice President, or Ivan M. Brehaut, Projects Coordinator, Av. Aramburu 656, Surquillo, Lima, Peru; Tel.: (51-14) 41-1791; Fax: (51-14)22-7530; e-mail: acpc@rednf.edu.pe.

This special issue gathers together knowledge about the genetic resources from a specific climatic region closely associated with the origin of agriculture in prehistoric times. Additionally, GRCS is also publishing this special Mediterranean issue in Arabic. If you are interested in ordering the Arabic edition, please contact GRCS immediately.

Only a limited number of the Mediterranean edition of DIVERSITY will be published. To order ($36/copy), contact GRCS, Inc., DIVERSITY, 4905 Del Ray Ave., Suite 401, Bethesda, MD 20814; Tel.: (301) 907-9350; Fax: (301) 907-9328; e-mail: diversitymag@igc.apc.org.


SCHOLARSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS


Every year The Garden Club of America offers a selection of unusual and excellent opportunities for further study to college and graduate students, as well as to landscape architects. Among the many offered:

-- a grant for graduate students in horticulture or biology to conduct field research on the biology and management of rare plants. The Catherine H. Beattie Fellowship was created to promote the conservation of rare and endangered flora in the United States through the programs of the Center for Plant Conservation headquartered at the Missouri Botanical Garden.

--awards in tropical botany for Ph.D. candidates. The Garden Club of America Awards in Tropical Botany were established to promote the preservation of tropical forests by enlarging the body of botanists with field experience. The awards enable botanists who are doctoral candidates to pursue independent field study in the tropics.

--a scholarship to study areas in the United States that provide winter and summer habitat for threatened and endangered native birds. The Frances M. Peacock Scholarship for Native Bird Habitat grants financial aid to an advanced student to study the aforementioned. Awarded in cooperation with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, it offers scholars the opportunity to pursue habitat-related issues that eventually benefit bird species and lend useful information for land management decisions.

Application deadlines vary. For more information on these and other scholarships and awards, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to: Scholarship Committee, The Garden Club of America, 598 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10022; Tel.: (212) 753-8287; Fax: (212) 753-0134.

COURSE CO-COORDINATORS NEEDED IN COSTA RICA


Eric Olson, coordinator for the Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) in Costa Rica is looking for tropical ecologists to assist as co-coordinators for the 1996 Costa Rican field courses, "Tropical Biology: An Ecological Approach", offered to Ph.D. and Masters candidates at OTS member universities. One co-coordinator is needed for the dry season course, January 10 - March 21, and a second co-coordinator is needed for the rainy season course, May 29 - August 7. These dates include precourse prep and post-course wrap-up time.

The courses include visiting six to seven pristine tropical habitats in Costa Rica, dry forest to wet lowland to wet montane to paramo, with 22 field biologists. The two coordinators for each course, along with additional invited faculty, lead field problems focusing on a range of basic questions in tropical biology and conservation, and guide students' individual efforts as well. Additional tasks are varied; both seasoned and novice Ph.D. level tropical biologists should find this work challenging, and will gain much satisfaction and useful skill from this job.

In addition to fluency in English and research experience in neotropical biology, candidates must have a Ph.D. in ecology or a closely related field. Excellent writing, speaking and biometrics skills are required. At least fair speaking ability in Spanish is highly desirable. For further information, contact Eric Olson via e-mail: eolson@ns.ots.ac.cr. Resumes can be sent through the e- mail address and should also be sent to Dr. Shaun Bennett, OTS Academic Director, P.O. Box 90630, Durham, NC 27708-630, or via e- mail to: sbennett@acpub.duke.edu.
