Country/Territory Peru
Habitat loss

General characteristics 

The semi-arid upper Inambari valley forms a major biogeographic barrier in southernmost Peru. Situated in northern Puno department, this valley lies at the junction of the Bolivian and Peruvian lower yungas (EBA 054; also for map), the Peruvian East Andean foothills (EBA 053), and the Bolivian and Peruvian upper yungas (EBA 055). The Inambari valley is deep (creating a rainshadow effect), with the narrow floor and steep sides extensively farmed; where not cleared or too rocky, the slopes are covered with dense evergreen shrubs 2-3
