PULIDO CAPURRO, Víctor Manuel  and  BERMUDEZ DIAZ, Ludisleydis. Current Conservation Status of the Habitats of the Pantanos de Villa, Lima, Perú. Arnaldoa [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.2, pp.679-702. ISSN 1815-8242.

The Pantanos de Villa, in Lima, Peru, originated from the underground waters of the Surco River, one of the branches of the Rimac River. The marshes have become places of great scientific, economic and social importance; with a high degree of endemism and particular biogeographical elements. The marshes have suffered many form variations. In the beggining of the 20th century its extension was 2000 hectares. Nowadays, it is 263.27 hectares. The defined habitats in Pantanos de Villa are: lagoon and waterbodies, reedbed, shrubland, Cyperaceae meadow, grasslands, canals and depressions, marine littoral, parks and gardens. This study shows that the loss and deterioration of habitats in the Pantanos de Villa is associated with inadequate management of water resources and anthropogenic pressures factors. The conservation of the habitats of the Pantanos de Villa is an important aspect to guarantee the survival of the biological diversity that lives there
