The plants’ answer to the top-bioclimate conditions is important for mapping
occurrences and indications of preferential areas for the development of the
This study aimed to georeference the natural occurrence of Taxibranco
(Sclerolobium paniculatum Vogel) and Parica (Schizolobium parahyba
amazonicum (Huber ex Ducke) Barneby) integrated with top-bioclimate
information to indicate plantations for rehabilitation of degraded landscape.
data regarding natural occurrence of species was investigated in the literature, the
herbaria of Embrapa Eastern Amazon and the Paraense Emilio Goeldi Museum
and demonstrative units in the Eastern Amazon.
Normal climates from thirty
year series with spatial resolution 3 km x 3 km were specialized in Arcgis 9.3
and exported to TerraView 3.2, to create the cellular space for integration of
variables in TerraME and to generate top-climate maps and species’ natural
As the Taxi-branco occurs in upland and lowland it was observed
that the species prefers areas of predominantly top bioclimate with water deficit
between 150 to 250 mm, and elevations below 200 m altitude, next to the river,
and the Parica in about 300 m altitude, and water deficit below 180 mm.
knowledge of these zones should enhance the degree of confidence on the areas
