is a genus of South American plants in the aster tribe within the sunflower family.
The upper high sierra zone () has 14 plant communities. Some of the species are "Fabiana weberbauerii", "Balbisia-Verbena Diplostephium", "Cherodesma" and tola ("
lepidophyllum") ) ) pampa, "stipa ichu", quenua ("Polylepis besseri"), and in the High Sierra – Bofedales ("Distchia moor").
In the puna rim (elevation ), the plant species are in the pampa dryland consisting of pampa and bunch grasses, and wetlands of bofedal and puna desert which is barren land. In the puna rim area, 32 species have been recorded in the dry and wetland areas. The dryland species are bunch grass species of Calamagrostits amonea, Calamagrostits bereifolia, stipa ichu, and shrub species of "
lucida", "Baccharis macrophylla", "Chersodoma iodopappa", cactus ("Opuntia atacamenis") at high altitudes, two woody plants of "Azorella compacta" (yareta), "Polylepis besseri". The wetland species are mats of "Distichia muscoides", "Oxychloe andinum" (khuli) over which the grasses that flourish are "Calamagrostis crysantha" and "Calamagrostis rigescens".
The flora is characterized by the presence of "bofedales", a kind of high altitude wetland, as well as yellow straw, broom sedge, tola de agua and tola amaia (two species of "
lepidophylla"), and coirón ("Festuca gracillima"), which can be observed on flat and hilly terrain and on the slopes of volcanoes and hills
Flora consists typically of open meadows with rocks, bunchgrass, herbs, moss, and lichen. Grasses are represented by the genera "Calamagrostis", "Agrostis", and "Festuca". "
lepidophylla" and "Margyricarpus" are small bush species found here. "Azorella compacta" and "Puya raimondi" are shared with the wet puna. "Polylepis", "Buddleja", and "Escallonia" are trees found at lower elevations.
The flora found here is similar to that found in the Tara and Aguas Calientes areas, characterized by "bofedales", yellow straw, broom sedge, tola de agua and tola amaia (two species of "
lepidophylla"), and coirón ("Festuca gracillima"), which can be observed on flat and hilly terrain. The fauna includes vizcachas, chululos, Andean foxes, cuyos, Andean flamingos, Chilean flamingos, ñandúes, Andean condors and eagles, among others.
The pleasant bolo mouse is found in the Andean Plateau of west-central South America, in western Bolivia and southeastern Peru. It is present in the altiplano grasslands at altitudes between about . It is also reported from the eastern side of the Andes on slopes in Salta Province, Argentina. It can be found near rocky outcrops and in sparsely-grassed area with scattered rocks, particularly in areas where the Peruvian feathergrass ("Jarava ichu") and "
lepidophylla" predominate. It is also found in "Polylepis" woodland and cultivated areas in Bolivia and seems tolerant of disturbance to its habitat.
lepidophylla, commonly known as tola or tola tola, is a species of flowering plant in the daisy family. It is native to South America and has been recorded from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru where it is characteristic of the puna grassland ecoregion. It is a resinous shrub, growing up to 2 m in height, that is typically found in semi-arid central Andean dry, or tola heath, puna habitats, at altitudes of 3500–5000 m above sea level, and in the undergrowth of central Andean "Polylepis" forest.
Vegetation is scarce in the arid climate. Vegetation at Llullaillaco begins at altitude with "Acantholippia punensis", "Atriplex imbricata", and "Cristaria andicola". They are joined at altitude by "Stipa frigida" which can be found up to of altitude. The maximum vegetation density is found around with 12% of the surface and decreases thereafter, probably due to the low temperatures. At this altitude, "Adesmia spinosissima", "Fabiana bryoides", "Mulinum crassifolium", and "
quadrangularis" are found in addition to the previously mentioned plants. Weakly developed bacterial communities have been found in the soils at Llullaillaco; some may depend on volcanic carbon monoxide.
The reserve in the Andean has vegetation consisting of tropical alpine herbs with dwarf shrubs of the forests of "Polylepis". Plant and tree species are reportedly about 190 species, in the harsh terrain, which have emerged given the conditions of salinity, lack of fresh water, low temperatures, and scarcity of nutrients. Flora restricted to this and other ecoregions include the genera "Barneoudia", "Hexaptera", "Nototriche", "Pycnophyllum" and "Werneria". The vegetation is characterized by the strong presence of pasture grass (straw) such as Peruvian feather grass ("Stipa ichu") in some plains and hillsides. The important plant species on which people are dependent for fuel wood in the area is yareta, which grows in the forest of the reserve at per year amidst rocky terrain. This hardwood tree, which looks like a foamy bubble bath but is as hard as stone, grows slowly, attaining a height of about in height with girth of and can be as old as 3000 years. In places with higher humidity, Tola or Thola ("
lepidophylla"), Quinoa and Kenua bush tree are found. The villagers use vegetation as fuel for heating and cooking.
