Demographic limitations for the sustainable extraction of palm heart from Euterpe precatoria in two forest types in Bolivia


Demographic limitations for the sustainable extraction of palm heart from Euterpe precatoria in two forest types in Bolivia



Ecologia en Bolivia 34: 7-25



In Bolivia, palm heart is commercially extracted from natural populations of Euterpe precatoria, mainly from reproductive individuals. Since this species is a single-stemmed palm and palm heart harvesting causes the death of each individual, extraction is expected to have a negative impact on future resource availability. The population dynamics of E. precatoria were studied in two types of habitat: terra-firme forest (at Beni) and seasonally flooded forest (at Santa Cruz).
