General Site Description: 

The site consists of 13 Cerrado fragments formed by five conservation areas and 8 remants of semideciduous forests. All these areas are within the basin of the Rio Paranaiba and thus share similar ecological conditions. These areas have similar human interference processes with already traditional agricultural use, impacts of hydroelectric facilities and recent intensification of the urbanization process.
