Iriartea Deltoidea and Socratea Exhorriza: Sustainable Production Alternatives for Integrated Biosystems


Lina Mojica Sánchez and Quiñonez MF

The objective of the present research is to analyze the structure, behavior and applicability of the integrated biosystems, through the study of the ancestral, current and potential uses of the sucker palms - Socratea Exhorriza and chonta - Iriartea Deltoidea; And how its ecosystem functioning provides us with environmental goods and services; Which until now have not been thoroughly reviewed and therefore many of its properties are unknown. It is for this reason that this research tries to demonstrate that there are tools that make it possible to formulate plans, programs or projects of sustainable use that allow the biosystem to maintain itself as the ecosystem. It is understood by integrated biosystems such as those that link two or more biological systems to transform organic waste into value-added products, through the use of processes involving microorganisms, major organisms, animals and plants. One of the processes becomes the raw material for the start of the next or the following processes (Rodríguez, et al.). "Biosystems are semi-open chemical chemosystems (or chemical reactors), which take from their surroundings the matter and energy they employ, which synthesize all their other components and reproduce" (Bunge). They are made up of elements among which are living beings organized at different hierarchical levels. For example, genetic systems, organ systems, parasite systems, plant systems, among others, where intermediate levels can be observed between individual systems and population systems or communities (Jaramillo). These constitutive elements play a fundamental role in the functioning of systems and therefore of biosystems, such as: Inorganic substances, organic compounds, climatic elements, producers, consumers, disintegrators. The study will be carried out through seven stages: The first one refers to the bioconstruction and use of wood, the second to the use of biomass, the third, the fauna refuge, the fourth, the entomological analysis of species found in Cellulose; The fifth, to edible and medicinal uses, the sixth to the interaction of microorganisms in the soil; And the seventh and last to the proposal of normative tools and recommended uses.
