The National Astronomical Observatory of Tarija, Bolivia with its telescopes and in cooperation with the International Network (ISON), carried out experimental observations of space debris detection in September and October 2005 in the most populated orbit, the geostationary one, which is where most satellites have been launched. From October 2006 regular observations are carried out with the Astrograph of 23 cm and the CCD camera. Later, a new and special telescope for this purpose was installed: the Sigma Ori 25. At present work is underway on improvements in the mechanical and optical automation of the Zeiss 600 for inclusion in this monitoring program.

We illustrate the results of geomorphological, stratigraphical and sedimentological analysis of the Tarija-Padcaya basin, a wide depression in the eastern side of the Bolivian Cordillera. The basin is well known for the rich mammal fauna discovered since the beginning of the 19th century. The sedimentary infilling belongs to the Tolomosa Formation, corresponding to a major synthem subdivided into three main sub-synthems, mostly made of fluvial and alluvial fan sediments locally weathered by paleoalfisols (Ancon Grande sub-synthem), glacial and fluvio-glacial sediments (Puente Phayo sub-synthem) and finally alluvial fan and alluvial plain sediments (San Jacinto sub-synthem). Radiocarbon dating provides a chronology for the last sub-synthem and testifies that the sequence encompasses the Last Interglacial-Glacial cycle and constitutes a good proxy record for Late Pleistocene climatic changes. The occurrence of glacial deposits in the deeper part of the sedimentary filling suggests a major ice advance during MIS 4 and, together with glacial geomorphological evidence, points to further glacial erosion during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). The importance of glacial deposition and erosion opens the question of correlation with the events reported in the nearby Altiplano, where glacial deposits have been recognized only along the slopes of the higher volcanoes. In the Altiplano the LGM has been claimed to be characterized by an absence of deposition or deep erosion, due to extreme dryness, but the Tarija record suggests an erosional event of a scale that would imply the occurrence of a large ice cap. © 2010 The Geologists' Association.

The Sama Range (Tarija Department, Bolivia) boasts a characteristic Andean landscape of high environmental, archaeological and architectural value that is home to the Sama Range Biological Reserve, where the Tajzara plain, with its large lagoons, is one of its outstanding features. The research conducted has studied the built habitat, identifying the domestic and religious architectural models present in order to propose protection policies and preservation strategies along two lines of work: The preservation of isolated settlements on the one hand, supporting local productive activities, and the promotion of experience tourism on the other, implementing lodging in traditional rehabilitated buildings. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group.

The frequency of selection of functional groups and plant species by free-ranging cattle foraging in a diverse environment and its changes during the dry and the following prehumid seasons were investigated using direct observations and bite counting. The study was conducted at two sites in the Bolivian-Tucuman montane forests in southern Bolivia, by including datasets of a total of 16 animals. Across both study sites and the entire observation period (May to October/November), the cattle were found to select a broad spectrum of plant species from different functional groups. However, just a limited number of species made up a considerable contribution to overall plant selection. The functional group of the graminoids was selected most frequently, but their contribution to plant selection decreased significantly from 63.5% of total bites in May to 15.9% in September/October, in accordance with a decrease in availability. Selection of woody plants (shrubs and tree parts, the latter mainly in the form of leaf litter and fruits) increased with time, reaching its peak at the beginning of the prehumid season, while the herbs showed a curvilinear pattern of selection which was highest in August. Plant species belonging to the functional groups of ferns, climbers and epiphytes were also selected by the cattle, but generally at low relative proportions. Plant selection might be influenced by temporal differences in nutritional quality and availability of the preferred plant species and functional groups. Sampling behaviour seems to be the most likely reason for the inclusion of a broad range of plant species with overall low contribution to plant selection. © 2010 Cambridge University Press.
