Resumen

OCAMPO-LOPEZ, Olga Lucía; CASTANEDA-PELAEZ, Karen  y  VELEZ-UPEGUI, Jorge Julián. Characterization of Colombian coffee ecotopes in the coffee triangle region. Perspectiva Geográfica [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.1, pp.89-108. ISSN 0123-3769.  http://dx.doi.org/10.19053/01233769.6100.

The Colombian coffee triangle comprises the departments of Caldas, Quindío and Risaralda. Geographical, climatic and soil diversity of the region allows to identify several coffee ecotopes that are determined by similar responses in terms of productivity. The characterization of the ecotopes shown in this paper was possible due to the availability of freely accessible geographic information, according to the law on transparency and the right to public information (Law 1712 of 2014). The information used for the characterization is related to geography, hydrology, climate, geology, soils and biomes. Geographic information systems tools were used for this analysis. Results allow a better understanding of climatic and geographical factors that are determinants for coffee productivity. Thus, guidelines for management and land use planning are provided.

Palabras clave : coffee; ecotopes; climatic factors; geographic factors.
