Tropenbos International Colombia’s Archive). Abel Rodríguez is an elder of the Nonuya people, an indigenous group from the mid Caquetá River in Colombia. He is an outstanding botanist and artist and has a vast knowledge and understanding of the Amazonian ecosystem. Abel has been part of the local research programme of Tropenbos International Colombia for many years. He began in the 1980s as a guide for researchers, where he had the opportunity to explain multiple aspects of the local flora to the scientists. For the last two decades Abel has put his knowledge on paper through drawings and produced detailed studies on the variety of reeds and lianas, palm trees, timber and non-timber trees and cultivated plants in the Amazon forest.Design by Lucy PeersCitation: Oxfam, International Land Coalition, Rights and Resources Initiative. 2016.
