Burned pasture land in the Pantanal replaced with groves of native tree species
Neiva Guedes has just written on Facebook that she had re-visited the Serra do Amolar, an imposing mountain chain in the centre of the Pantanal where there had been serious fires earlier in the year. She discovered to her delight that the pasture land had been replaced with groves of manduvis, acuris, bocaiuvia and other native trees. The acuris were already producing fruit which was being eaten by the macaws. She comments that manduvi and acuri are key species in the Pantanal as they are both a food source for a wide range of species.
