ALARCON, Diego et al. NEW POPULATIONS FOR BERBERIDOPSIS CORALLINA HOOK.F. (BERBERIDOPSIDALES: BERBERIDOPSIDACEAE) IN BIO BIO REGION, CHILE: LOCATION AND HABITAT CONSERVATION. Gayana Bot. [online]. 2007, vol.64, n.2, pp. 217-231. ISSN 0717-6643. doi: 10.4067/S0717-66432007000200007.
The location of 123 new records of the woody climbing vine michay rojo or voqui pilfuco (Berberidopsis corallina Hook.f.) in Bio Bio Region, Chile, is presented and its habitat conservation status is described. The populations of this threatened species were discovered in 65 native forest fragments for conservation purposes in Bosques Arauco S.A. company lands. These records increase significantly the known spatial and altitudinal distribution for this endemic species considered as endangered. They also show a greater proximity among its populations in Bio Bio Region than previous data
