Polylepis is the dominant genus of the high Andean forest vegetation and they have a crucial
ecological role. However, these forests are highly endangered and many of their biological
aspects are still unknown. In this context, a series of questions were formulated with the aim
that their resolution would contribute to a better understanding of Polylepis’dynamics and
biological diversity, as well as improve their conservation efforts. Twenty one speakers from the
V International Congress of Conservation and Ecology of Polylepis forests participated in the
formulation of 67 questions related to these forests. Comments and additional information
were received via email and google doc spreadsheet, open to the participants. Afterwards, two
workshops were organized with the researchers to formulate, discuss, analyze and define the
final list, narrowing down to a total of 40 questions. The questions were categorized into 6
different topics: Taxonomy, Ecology and Biogeography, Genetics, Conservation, Ethnobiology
and Climate Change. We hope these questions will be considered as a priority for new research
agendas and to define joint efforts for Polylepis forest conservation.
