Abstract

Continuing the study of the green areas of the Campus II of the Federal University of Goiás it was developed a research in order to check the situation of the arborization at Campus. The sites of the present study consisted of spaces among buildings, streets, places, parking places and a little wood. A scale of 1:5000 was used to localize them in an aerophotogramatic plant The plants were located and identified. The native species are remainders of the semideciduous forest occurring in the locality, e. g. Apuleia molaris Spruce (garapa), Anadenanthera peregrina L. (angico), Cedrela fissilis Vel. (cedro) and Tabebuia serratifolia (Vahl.) Nichols. (ipê amarelo) and many other species. Spathodea campanulata Beauv. (espatódea), Delonix regia Rafin (flamboyant), Pachira aquatica Aublet. (munguba), Caesalpinia echinata Lan. (pau-brasil) and Syagrus oleracea (Mat.) Becc. (guariroba) are some of the exotic species from other states and from the flora of Goiás. The totality of 1,389 individuals were distributed among 43 families and 84 genres. The study showed that some species have not been planted in adequate localities because of the high tonnage, root system and falling of the leaves. This investigation will permit an amplification, improvement of the arborization and recomposition of the green areas of Campus II. It will also contribute to future landscaping projects.
