The conservation feasibility of the Cerrado remnants in São Paulo State


The hight rate of cerrados disappearance, pointed out in the last Forest Inventory in the State of São Paulo, showed the urgency in establishing conservation and restoration means to maintain those remnants. The interdiciplinarity of the Teams envolved is the guarantee of success in indicating the cerrados areas where the ecological and economical conservation is feasible. Taking the advantage of the IF effort and the experience of the Teams in cerrado, this project aim to: a) upgrade the physiognomic classes within those remnants; b) indicate their conservation status and degradation agents; c) indicate how their (per fragment) plant species can be economically feasible; e) evaluate the legal instruments to incentive conservation and disincentive degradation; and f) inform non academic community about those findings. The number of remnants studied will result from a previous spatial analysis hierarchichy, scheduled depending on time and money. (AU)
