RESUMO

A 138 ha area of rainforest has been donated to INPA for an ecological research reserve in Ouro Preto do Oeste, Rondônia. The land was given to INPA by the municipal government of Ouro Preto do Oeste. A fence around the reserve has been constructed with faunds from World Wildlife Fund-US. The unique location of the reserve within walking distance of a small, city will make possible many ecological research projects that would otherwise be Impractical.
