Moorlands are ecosystems that in the last decades have suffered abrupt changes in their structure and composition, either by anthropic or climatic action. Although thereare differentlaws that are focused in their conservation, it has not established punctual activities which contribute to their full development and fulfillment.
The publication collects the results of the research made by the Group of Investigation in Development and Sustainable Agricultural Production (GIPSO) in association with Corpoboyacá during the last three years, where it was determined the baseline of power in the capture of carbon in soils of the seven complexes in the jurisdiction of Corpoboyacá. It is very important the union of efforts between two regional entities: Universidad Pedagógica y Tecnológica de Colombia and CorporaciónAutónoma Regional de Boyacá-Corpoboyacá, who through cooperation scenarios, they integrate some capabilities around validation of a methodology which allows to estimate under different conditions of use of soils, the capability of this ecosystem to fix carbon in its organic components.
These results will help to take some decisions in the development of strategies for conservation, management and protection of the moorland ecosystems in the jurisdiction of Corpoboyacá, besides, it is a reference to continue with researches that allow, at some time, to generate detailed information in relation to the behavior of the substances that form the organic part of the soil and their relation with stable scenarios of carbon capture in an evident time of climate changes.
