Perspectivas urbano-rurales sobre la circulación de dos frutos silvestres del Bosque Altoandino en sistemas agroalimentarios de Bogotá, Colombia

Abstract : Mortiño (Hesperomeles goudotiana (Decne.) Killip) and Uva Camarona (Macleania rupestris (Kunth) A.C.Sm.) are two native species of the high Andean ecosystems that are found both in wooded areas, in roads and homegardens in the rurality of Bogotá. Although their food use as wild berries is traditional and well known among high mountain peasant communities, the sociocultural factors associated with agri-food systems of this kind of species and its commercialization in large-scale populated centers have not been analyzed. In this research, semi-structured interviews were carried out in 17 rural areas of Bogotá, 12 urban public market places were visited, as well as representatives of restaurants and networks of solidarity-based commercialization in Bogotá who have introduced these species in their offer were interviewed. As a result, a compilation of the knowledge associated with Mortiño and Uva Camarona is made and a description of its circulation in agri-food circuits from its collection in the field to its final destinations in the Bogotá urban area. Additionally, the relationship between the commercialization of these species, the conservation of the biocultural memory and the socioeconomic opportunities that its promotion and sustainable management would have at the local scale are analyzed.
