Research:
My main research areas today are forest ecology and conservation of forest biodiversity. Together with Mary Kalin Arroyo, in the mid-90's we showed that southern South America temperate forests have high generic endemism and are very like tropical cloud forests in their reproductive biology. More recently, my laboratory has been looking at nutrient cycling where we have shown that the Nitrogen cycle of old-growth, North Patagonian forests in Chile differs from theoretical expectations based on successional theory. These ecosystems retain inorganic nitrogen, despite very low inputs via rainfall. However, there were major hydrologic losses from the forest ecosystem in the form of dissolved organic nitrogen. This finding questions the idea that nutrient cycles are balanced in old-growth forest stands. In the near future we will be investigating the interaction between nutrient cycling and ENSO. For conservation we have documented the biased distribution of public protected lands in southern temperate rain forests, which leaves unprotected the biologically richer mid-latitude and coastal areas. An effective conservation strategy should therefore focus on the management of remnant native forests in lowland and coastal areas outside parks. For this, the interaction between scientists and landowners is necessary. We are currently studying how different target species, aspects of nutrient cycling and interactions such as pollination and seed dispersal are affected by forest fragmentation in a managed landscape.

Los bosques nativos son parte de nuestro patrimonio cultural y biológico. Ellos otorgan al planeta servicios ambientales en forma de reservas de diversidad biológica, depósitos de carbono, fuentes de humedad, y contribuyen significativamente a la regulación del clima y de los flujos de energía y materia de la biósfera. Este libro es una guía para el reconocimiento de las especies leñosas del bosque siempreverde lluvioso de la isla de Chiloé, e incluye datos sobre su ecología y sobre las interacciones en que participan con su entorno biótico y físico.

Native forests are part of our cultural and biological heritage. By being reservoirs of biological diversity, carbon deposits and sources of moisture, they provide Earth with fundamental environmental services, contributing to the regulation of the climate and the flow of energy and matter through the biosphere. This field guide to the woody species of the Chiloe Island evergreen rainforest includes information about their ecology and interactions with their biotic and physical environment.

Historia, Biodiversidad y Ecología de los Bosques Costeros de Chile
History, Biodiversity and Ecology of Chile's Coastal Forests


Smith-Ramírez, C., J. Armesto & C. Valdovinos (eds) (2005). Editorial Universitaria, Santiago. 708 pp.

Ante el continuo deterioro de muchos ecosistemas de Chile, este texto quiso reunir el conocimiento actual sobre una de las áreas más emblemáticas y menos apreciadas por los chilenos: los bosques nativos de la Cordillera de la Costa de Chile. Este territorio montañoso, que comprende desde la Séptima a la Décima Región, una vez estuvo cubierto por bosques en toda su extensión. Actualmente, en la mayor parte del cordón costero solo es posible encontrar pequeños remanentes de vegetación nativa aislados entre si y altamente amenazados por nuestra propia ignorancia.

Given the continuing deterioration of many ecosystems in Chile, this text gathers the current knowledge on one of the most emblematic and least appreciated - by the Chileans - ecosystems: the native forests of the Cordillera de la Costa. This mountainous area, which extends from the Seventh to the Tenth Regions, was once covered by forests in its entirety. Currently, in most of the coastal ranges only small isolated remnants of native vegetation survive, highly threatened by our own ignorance.
