When time and funding permit, each flower (each plant species) will have its own page, and its own PDF, and eventually its own PPT so that professors and students have plenty of material on Guatemala (and Honduras, etc) to study.

The “aguadas” consist of areas that store rainwater, and can vary from 236 m2 to several hectares. The aguadas usually appear in low densities, since they are dispersed in the landscape. Since the aguadas are formed by the accumulation of rainwater, they present a dynamic associated with the dry and rainy seasons, in which some aguadas can dry out completely during the dry season, while others remain throughout the rainy season. year. Due to the limited availability of surface water in the region, aguadas are one of the main sources of water to support wildlife during the dry season. More than 20 species of vertebrates have been documented visiting the aguadas, including endangered species of economic and cultural importance, including birds such as Aramides albiventris (gallinula), Crax rubra (pheasant), Meleagris ocellata (ocellated turkey), as well as mammalian species including Tapirus bairdii (tapir or tapir), Panthera onca (jaguar), Tayassu pecari (white-lipped wild boar), Puma concolor (Puma), Leopardus pardalis (Ocelot), among others (García, et al., 2017).

According to several references two of the mammalian species that have a high dependence on aguadas are T. bairdii and T. pecari, so that aguadas are vital for their survival
