The pepeaderos, where the seeds of life fall
“Pepeaderos” reffers to the set of trees on the banks of wetlands and rivers that produce seeds, colloquially called «pepas», which serve as food for countless species of fish such as gamitanas, acarawuazus, piranhas, catfish and sardines; when they fall to the waters.
These fish are part of the food security of the Amazonian communities and feed the dolphins, otters and alligators that live in these wetlands. These fish also contribute to the architecture and diversity of the jungle, because as they eat the fruits only consuming the fleshy part, they release the seeds upstream and downstream.
Pepeaderos are made by species like: acaí, aguaje, reventillo, camu camu, murichí, capinurí, guayaba de monte, etc.
