The premountain forest of the southern Yungas is considered a relic of the pleistocene arch that has numerous endemisms of trees, many of which are used forestry and are threatened. The premountain is one of the most threatened ecosystems, where 90% of its original surface has been lost. These forests have poor regeneration, but the dynamics of this critical stage are unknown, whose mechanism is fundamental to ensure sustainable forest management and therefore the conservation of this ecosystem.
New silvicultural guidelines will be developed to be implemented by forestry companies and state control agencies.
