Site description A Fazenda Pindobas IV é uma propriedade particular situada na região serrana do sul do Espírito Santo, a cerca de 50 km a leste-nordeste do Parque Nacional do Caparaó (ES/MG01). A área da fazenda foi recentemente ampliada de 3.167 ha para cerca de 4.000 ha, dos quais mais de 1.000 ha são de florestas nativas distribuídas em numerosos fragmentos intercalados por plantações de pinheiros exóticos. Uma das maiores e mais importantes áreas de floresta nativa da fazenda corresponde ao complexo Pingadeira, que é contínuo com matas existentes em propriedades vizinhas. Pindobas IV situa-se em uma região de transição entre as florestas ombrófila densa e ombrófila aberta, esta última caracterizada regionalmente pela presença da palmeira indaiáaçu, ou inajá (Attalea sp.).
