“The paramo is an ecosystem, a biome, a landscape, a geographical area, a zone of life, a space of production, a symbol and even a state of climate.” (Hofstede, 2003). There are no easy definitions for such a complex ecosystem. Paramos are normally characterized by their fragile ecosystems that store fresh water. They are known for their high degree of endemic species, (i.e. prevalent only in that area) and for the ingenious way that these species adapt to the extreme conditions of their habitat. Paramos account for 5% of the overall surface area of Ecuador.
