In 2011, Ignacio Solano and the team of Paisajismo Urbano travelled to the cloud forest of Chicaque. The natural park of Chicaque really attracted our attention because of its orchids’ endemic species, unique in the world, that you can find from the two thousand meters of altitude on.
This natural oddity together with low fog and an average temperature of 19ºC offer an unique habitat, where we can develop our research about vertical ecosystems, by offering us information and measurements that, sometimes, are far away from the ones accepted by the academic world. Enjoy some of the images of our work in the cloud forests of the Colombian Chicaque.
