Abstract

Ochroma pyramidale, is a species recognized for its economic and ecological importance, widely used in forest plantation programs. The aim of this work was to evaluate seed quality indicators of Ochroma pyramidale in three sites in the Amazon region of Ecuador for reforestation purpose in degraded areas. The results indicated that the seeds of the species in the three study sites are of good quality, expressed through the germinative capacity, germination energy, useful value and germinative vigor, although in San Juan they presented higher values as a reflection of their vitality and exuberant nature.
