NEW SPECIES AND RANGE EXTENSIONS – NEW SPECIES OF AMAZON ADVENTURE: Before our inventory, Amazon Adventure egantoni was almost entirely unknown to scientists, and during our rapid inventory, we encountered many of the species we suspected would live here. However, some of our finds were entirely unexpected (Table 1). For every 100 plant species we recorded, 2 are probably species new to science; for every 10 dung beetles,

  1. to 4 are probably new; for every 10 fishes, 1 or 2 are probably new; for every 10 amphibians or 10 reptiles in Amazon Adventure.
  2. are probably new. For a 15-day inventory, these are impressive numbers and hint at the species richness that remains to be documented in the wilds Amazon Adventure of Megantoni.
  3. Species richness (observed and estimated) and the number of species potentially new to science for each group sampled during the 25 April-13 May 2004 rapid inventory in Zona Reservada Megantoni, Peru. Missing records are represented with a dash.

We discovered almost all of the potentially new species at our two higher-elevation campsites, with the exception of 1 Osteocephalus frog and 8 new dung beetles that were found in the lowlands. For plants, the bulk of potentially new species are orchids; preliminary impressions suggest that perhaps 20 of the 116 fertile orchids collected are new to science  Based on digital photographs we took in the field, specialists have tentatively identified 9 additional plant species, from 9 different families, as new to science in jungle trips.

Many of the 22 fish species we registered during the inventory are endemic to Amazon Adventure Megantoni. In particular, some species in the families Astroblepidae and Trichomycteridae have almost certainly undergone spéciation within the isolated watersheds of Megantoni. At least 3 species we collected are new to science, including Cetopsis sp, Chaetostoma  and Astroblepus Several species within the Trichomycteridae are potentially new as well in this  Amazon Adventure.

We encountered 51 species of amphibians and reptiles. Slightly more than 20% are new to science: 7 anurans, 4 lizards, and 1 snake. The new amphibian species include an Osteocephalus (Figure 9E), a Phrynopus, at least 1 new species of Eleutherodactylus, a Centrolene (Figure 9H), a Colostethus, a Gastrotheca  and a Syncope. We also discovered a new species of snake (Taeniophalius, on the mid-elevation slopes and 4 new species of lizards (Alopoglossus )Euspondylus, Neusticurus, and Proctoporus) living on the isolated tablelands in the heart of Megantoni.

RANGE EXTENSIONS IN AMAZON ADVENTURE

Our inventory in Megantoni registered some species that were previously known only from areas more than 500 km away, as well as some species at much higher or lower elevations than previously recorded. Other groups are so poorly known for the rest of the region ( dung beetles, fishes) that more data need to be collected before we can draw conclusions about endemism or range extensions in amazon adventure with jungle trips.

For plants, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals, we can compare some of our Amazon Adventure Megantoni findings to records from other sites in Peru and elsewhere in South America. As we continue to examine our collections and to research published reports from other sites, we expect to uncover even more geographic and elevational range extensions within the biological communities of Amazon Adventure Megantoni.

Plants of the Amazon Adventure

For plants, several collections in Megantoni extend the known ranges of species hundreds of kilometers farther south. At our low-elevation campsite, Kapiromashi, we registered Wercklea ferox (Malvaceae) for the first time in southern Peru. At the two higher campsites, we found Ceroxylon parvifrons (Arecaceae), Tapeinostemon zamoranum , Sarcopera anómala (Marcgraviaceae), Macleania floribunda (Ericaceae), Miconia condylata (Melastomataceae), and Peltastes peruvianus all previously known only from northern Peru.

Our collection of Heliconia robusta (Heliconiaceae) fills a large gap in the knowledge of its distribution. Known mostly from Bolivia, it has been collected only a handful of times in Peru, always in sites north of Megantoni. This Heliconia, with triangular green and red bracts and yellow flowers, dominated parts of the naturally disturbed forest around Kapiromashi.

Amphibian and reptiles Amazon Adventure

Our inventory increased the known geographic and elevational distributions of several species and even a few genera. At Megantoni we noted the southernmost distributional record in Peru for Syncope, and the lowest elevation recorded for Phrynopus and Telmatobius.

We also registered an apparently undescribed species of Neusticurus, recorded previously from Santa Rosa (-800 m asl), in the Inambari basin, Puno Department, some 230 km southeast of Megantoni Amazon Adventure. At Kapiromashi we found Epipedobates macero , a rare poison dart frog restricted to the Rio Purus in Brazil, Parque Nacional Manu, and the rivers in the Urubamba valley. This record extends its elevational range to 800 m from the previous record of 350 m where the species was described in Manu. While sampling in the leaf litter, we discovered a small Phrynopus cf. bagrecito, known from higher elevations in Manu but never before reported from such low elevations (-2,200 m asl).

Birds Amazon Adventure

We encountered bird species outside their published elevational ranges at every inventory site. Our records in Megantoni extend distributional limits for some species farther south, for others farther north. Three birds deserve special mention: Scimitar-winged Piha (Lipaugus uropygialis,  Selva Cacique (Cacicus koepckeae,  and Black Tinamou (Tinamus osgoodi,  All three species are remarkably abundant in parts of Megantoni, although exceedingly uncommon worldwide. Our records substantially increase our understanding of the distribution of these rare birds in this park Amazon Adventure.

Our record of Scimitar-winged Piha is the second for Peru; it was previously known only from Abra Marancunca in Puno Department. From Puno, the species occurs eastward along the humid Bolivian yungas to Cochabamba Department (Bryce et al., in press). Our record is a range extension of more than 500 km to the northwest and suggests the species may occur along other mountain ranges in Cusco and Puno Departments, such as within Parque Nacional Manu.

At Kapiromashi we registered Selva Cacique, a species described from Balta, Ucayali Department, by Lowery and O’Neill in 1965, and essentially unknown until rediscovered by Gerhart near Timpia (Schulenberg et al. 2000; Gerhart, 2004 Ours is one of a handful of sightings, and the highest elevational record for the species.

Black Tinamou has a highly spotty distribution in the Andes, with scattered records from Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. This species was common at our two high elevation sites, and our records fill one of the many large gaps in our knowledge of its distribution.

Mammals Amazon Adventure

We observed a group of four brown capuchin (Cebus apella) individuals at an elevation of 1,760 m. This record is 260 m higher than the elevational range reported by Emmons and Feer (1999).

NATIVE COMMUNITY LIVING IN MEGANTONI RESERVE ZONE

The native communities belong to two linguistic families the predominant linguistic group is the Arahuca.made up of Machiguenga. Camp (ashaninka and kakinte) Nanty, kugapakori and yine yami, Piro the pano linguistic family, which is smaller and less influential ,composition of the region is rather homogeneous because natives belonging to the Arahuaca linguistic family make up 85% of the native population of the area, their similar languages and customs facilitate communication among the ethnic group.

MANU BIOSPHERE RESERVE

Manu Biosphere reserve is 242km (150 miles) NE of Cusco Manu, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site, certainly lack for distinctions and accolades. The Biosphere Reserve encompasses the least sible and explored jungle of primary and secondary forest in Peru, and it is about as as you’re likely to come to virgin rainforest anywhere in the world. In fact, it’s so r that not only did the Spaniards, who found their way to virtually every cornerof except Machu Picchu, never enter the jungle, but the Incas, who created an empire stretched from Ecuador to Chile, never conquered the region, either. The forest v, really penetrated until the late 1800s, when rubber barons and loggers set their sights it. Peru declared it a national park in 1973. Only slightly smaller than the.

THREE AREAS OF MANU RESERVE ZONE

The reserve is divided into three zones. By far the largest, Zone A is the core zone, the National Park, which is strictly preserved in its natural state. Zone B is a Buffer Zone, generally known as the Reserved Zone and set aside mainly for controlled research and tourism. Zone C is the Transitional or Cultural Zone, an area of human settlement for controlled traditional use. Accessible only by boat, any expedition to Manu is very much in the hands of the gods, because of the temperamental jungle environment; the region experiences a rainy season from December to March, and is best visited between May and August when it’s much drier, although at that time the temperatures often exceed 30°C (86°F).

>FLORA FAUNA OF THE MANU NATIONAL PARK

FLORA FAUNA OF THE MANU NATIONAL PARK

For flora and fauna, the Manu is pretty much unbeatable in South America, home to 20,000 vascular plant types (one five-square-kilometer area was found to contain 1147 species of vascular plants, almost as many as in the whole of Great Britain), with over 5000 flowering plants, 1200 species of butterfly, 1000 types of bird, 200 kinds of mammal and an unknown quantity of reptiles and insects. Rich in macaw salt-licks, otter lagoons and prowling jaguars, there are thirteen species of monkey and seven species of macaw in Manu, and it still contains other species in serious danger of extinction, such as the giant otter and the black caiman (Melanosuchus www.sandovallakeamazontravel.com)

ACCESS ROUTES OF MANU NATIONAL PARK

Due to the nature of the trip Cusco – Manu national park there are three pathways of complement each other, which are:

VIA LAND OF MANU NATIONAL PARK : The road is used Cusco – Shintuya, in which the second named is in the province of Manu; in whose path the vehicle train is regulated, considering day in and day out admission days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. While (exit are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday This provision of the Ministry of transportation and communications, is due to the narrowness of the road, bridge Huambutío in Cusco until Shintuya. Besides this pathway Paucartambo has steep slopes, why circulating Paucartambo into the jungle only trucks and vans suspension wheel drive, especially to spend Sludge and Coal ford rivers. On the way after passing the bridge Huambutío, after an hour is reached Huancarani district is 3,700 meters above sea level. In which place is held the Sunday fair purchase and see agricultural products of the highlands area, such as potatoes, ollucos, barley, lamb. Then after two hours of journey up Paucartambo, which is 2,906 meters above sea level. View gallery of the Manu National Park.

Continuing the road from Acjanaco penetration (Manu National Park) begins the descent to Qosñipata Quechua name that is explained by the low output and crisp mist from the inside of the jungle and slowly ascending the mountains to transport; the sharpness of the fog looks like smoke, which in Quechua qosñi leg height translates as, being the merger of these two terms in Quechua Qosñipata.

AMAZON PERU MACAWS CLAY LICK

All Macaws have large, strong bills, bright plumage and long tapered tails, but their distinguishing field characteristic is the bare patch of facial skin around the eye and beak.. The three larger species of the Amazon Peru Macaw are much brighter in color than the other two Red and Green Macaws and Scarlet Macaws are both bright crimson, but Red and Greens have no yellow feathers on their wings (Scarlet do). Blue and Yellow Macaws, as their name suggests, are bright cobalt blue and gold in the Amazon Peru

All three have (harsh crow-like calls that echo around the forest, whether in flight, feeding in fruiting trees or at the colpas, they are never quiet .Amazon Peru Macaws nest in holes in trees or in the branches of large emergent trees. Blue and Yellows are the most selective-in choosing a nest site, generally only nesting inside old Puna Palms. This is a growing problem for these spectacular birds as the bird trade has cut down many of these nest sites in the search for chicks to export. There are research programmers, however in Tambopata that erect artificial nest sites, in likely trees to hopefully safeguard the future of these incredible birds in the Amazon Peru

The two smaller in the Amazon Peru Macaw species both have mainly green plumage with blue wings. The Chestnut Flouted Macaw is distingue from the Red Bellied Macaw by having white facial skin and a reddish color on the underside of its wings and tail. The Red bellied macaw has yellow facial skin and a yellowy color under the wings and tail the red bellied macaw and chest nut are usually seen flying in the large flocks (up to twenty individuals ) in the Amazon Peru

AMAZON PERU HISTORY: Throughout in the Amazon Peru history, extravagant wealth and sordid misery are dominant themes. Fortunes were found and lost; kingdoms were defeated; peoples were enslaved and freed. Deadly diseases, fearsome creatures, hostile Indians and rapacious settlers, all within the forest’s immensity, set the stage for a fascinating and often turbulent history. Added to this, the overwhelming power of legends attracted conquistadors from halfway across the world in search of the gilded man of El Dorado, while explorers throughout the centuries have searched in vain for the women tribes of the Amazon Peru and numerous lost cities:

ORIGINS OF THE AMAZON PERU: Today the Amazon yields few of its past secrets. Unfortunately the heat, together with the damp and acid soils of the rainforest, conspire to decompose organic remains quickly before they can fossilize. Human fossils are virtually absent from the lowland regions, so we have practically no certain clues as to how and when people arrived in the area. Likewise, without animal fossils it is difficult to reconstruct ancient faunas and so we are denied the human picture in its ecological context.

Aboriginal peoples of the Americas are believed to have arrived on the continent around 15 -20,000 years ago, between the two most recent ice ages. Migrating east and southwards, the hunter-gatherers made their way across the isthmus of Central America down to South America. This wave of migration gave rise to the Olmec, Maya and A2tec civilizations of Central America which flourished from 1400BC until the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in the early 1500s. In the eastern coastal regions and highlands of South America the Chimu and Inca, along with many other cultures, left ample architectural and cultural artefacts for us to ponder. In the last twenty years, chance discoveries and finds of stone tools and ceramics have suggested that large populations were established on the flood plains near the current city of Manaus by 3000BC. Some authorities believe humans have been in the Amazon much longer than formerly thought. David Childress, recounting The Chronicle of Akaka, describes advanced civilizations and lost cities in the Amazon dating back over 12,000 years ago.

Small mammals, the bats and rodents that venture our only at night, are much less likely to attract attention. They should not be ignored, however, as they make up the majority of the mammalian diversity in Manu, are a significant prey base for large predators, and are extremely important in maintaining plant diversity via their roles as seed dispersers and seed predators. We see ecotourism as a mean of preserving nature by providing sustainable development for the communities that live surrounding natural habitats like Manu National Park.

AMAZON TRAIL – MANU PARK: The forests in order to provide a reservoir of under­lying nutrients for their crops. In the Amazon, however, the nutrient propor­tions are reversed: as much as 90% are stored in the vegetation above ground and only 10% in the thin, often clayey soils below. Despite appear­ances to the contrary, the irony of the Amazon is that the world’s most luxu­riant forest lies rooted in the midst of an enormous nutrient desert in amazon trail. All told, over 27,000 square miles (70,000 km2) of the Peruvian Amazon trail has been deforested to date, an area roughly four times the size of the Manu Biosphere Reserve; 743,100 additional acres (300,000 hectares) are deforested every year within the Amazon rainforest.

MANU PERUVIAN JUNGLE: A mysterious, almost prehistoric look to the landscape is provided by the often common presence of tree ferns. They are true ferns, but they grow to the size of small trees. Small ferns are also often abundant. Mosses, lichens and ferns are some of the oldest plants on earth and interestingly, they all depend upon mobile sperm for sexual reproduction. Thus, rain has to fall to enable the plants ‘sperm to travel over the wet surfaces of the plant, with the end goal of finding an egg and reproducing. Of course this process is inextricably linked to the watery origins of these plants in Manu Peruvian Jungle with the travel agency and tourism Manu Jungle Trips to see the Amazon jungle of Peru.
