Adolpho Ducke Forest Reserve

The Adolfo Ducke Forest Reserve (RFAD) is also an integral part of the PELD Sítio 1 project and covers 10,000 ha of tropical rain forest on the outskirts of Manaus. It is located in the watershed of two main drainage basins: one for the Amazon River and the other for the Rio Negro. The Ducke Reserve Permanent Parcels Project was initiated to allow integrated biota studies, which can serve as a basis for biodiversity surveys in other areas of the Amazon region. The Reserve has a RAPELD grid (25 km2 inserted in a larger grid of 64 km2).
