The valley of Poroma with mesquite trees Prosopis pallida of the Acacias family
The valley of Poroma with mesquite trees Prosopis pallida of the Acacias family that survive in arid areas with long taproots that deprive neighbouring plants of water so they die. The trees can replace forest and prevent erosion. At the beginning of the 6th century the Nazca culture in this area collapsed, possibly when these trees were cleared following erosion and desertification after an El Nino event. The trees are now being planted in this region to combat erosion. San Fernando National Reserve, Ica Region, southern Peru
