AMAZON TRIPS TO NATIVE COMMUNITY: hundred thousand. The indigenous population belong to ethnic groups : Cucama – Cucamillu . Kichwa , Shipibo Conibo Shiwulu ( Jebero ) and Kacha Edze ( Shimaco ) . The flora of the reserve has been estimated at 965 wild plant species and 59 cultivated species (559 genera and 132 families ), where 22 species of orchids and palm tree stood ( tessmannii Attalea ) and Celtis iguanea a semi – shrub or lianous tree , both endangered
AMAZON TRIPS :The freshwater fish fauna of tropical South America is among the richest vertebrate faunas on Earth, with more than 6,000 species Amazon Trips representing about 46% of the world’s 13,000 freshwater fish species, and perhaps 10 % of all known vertebrate species (Vari and Malabarba 1998; Reis et al. 2003). At the core of this region lies the Amazon Trips basin, the greatest interconnected freshwater fluvial system on the planet, discharging approximately 16% of the world’s flowing freshwater into the Atlantic Ocean (Goulding et al. 2003). The diversity of South American freshwater fishes is centered on the Amazon Trips basin. The alpha diversity of Amazonian wildlife faunas is very high, with many floodplain faunas represented by more than 100 locally abundant resident species (Crampton 1999 to 2003). The Yuruá River rises in the department of Ucayali in Peru and runs into Brazilian territory, where it is known as Juruá River is a tributary to the Amazon River (Brazil) in the Amazon Trips basin with more than 90 % of its length flowing through Brazilian territory. The river has an extensive number of meanders, a huge floodplain, and is studded with thousands of oxbow lakes. The Juruá contributes about 4% of the total Amazon Trips discharge (Goulding 2003). One of the earliest fish studies in basin was made by La Monte (1935), who presented a fish list with 37 species from the Amazon River, an upper tributary to the Juruá in Brazil. Other studies in the upper portions of (2000; 2001) presenting respectively 90 and 111 species from the Brazilian portion of this drainage, and Rengifo (2007), identifying a high diversity of 185 species from the Peruvian portion. Here we report the result of an expedition to the River Yuruá, as part of a four-year survey project funded by NSF called “Proyecto Alto Purus”. The goals of this project are to sample the headwaters of four major basins in Peru: Ucayali, Yuruá, Purus and Madre de Dios. These basins have a radial pattern rising in the Fitzcarrald arch, a major structural high of the Andes in the Amazon Trips foreland basin (Spurt et al. 2007). Materials and methods Sixteen localities where sampled in the upper portions of the Rio Yuruá, department of Ucayali in Peru Field work was conducted from July 20 to August 11, 2008, for a period of 20 days during the dry season, in the area of the town of Brue (09°31′ S, 72° 45′ W, 271 m) on the upper Yuruá river in southeastern Peru, Three major types of environments where sampled . river channels and beaches (river), stream runs and pools (quebradas), and oxbow lakes (cochas) Rios are major rivers are small tributary streams, and cochas are oxbow lakes located on the floodplain. All collecting stations were dereferenced using GPS, and habitats were documented with high resolution digital about to Amazon Trips
