The knowledge and conservation of the biological diversity of the Colombian Amazon has an immense value for the development of the region and the country. This proposal presents the collections of the SINCHI Institute, through which we seek to inform of the importance and diversity of plants and species in the Amazon region.

The biological collections of COAH and CIACOL are the product of different research processes and they follow processing, curation and access standards that allow the specimens to be keep in good condition and available for consultation following the protocols of use.
