          Abstract

          Resumen Evaluar la capacidad de carga en los atractivos turísticos es fundamental para medir y monitorear el impacto del flujo de usuarios en los atractivos de uso público y privado, especialmente en áreas protegidas. El turismo convencional, sin una planificación adecuada en la región amazónica, puede promover la degradación ambiental en los senderos de los atractivos. En este contexto, el objetivo de este estudio fue determinar la capacidad de carga turística (CCT) de los senderos en los atractivos turísticos de Presidente Figueiredo, Amazonas, considerando el estado de degradación forestal en esos locales. Para determinar la CCT, se utilizó el método de Cifuentes et al. (1999), dividido en tres niveles: físico (CCF), real (CCR) y efectivo (CCE). Según los resultados obtenidos, destacamos los atractivos que presentaron una óptima CCE como: "Neblina" (77 personas día-1), "Complejo de Iracema Falls" (90 personas día-1) y "Cachoeira da Onça" (39 personas día-1). Además, hubo una moderada degradación forestal en los senderos de las atracciones "Perema" (40.3%), "Santuario" (26.9%), "Galo da Serra" (26.9%) y "Pedra Furada" (26.1%). Estos resultados pueden ayudar en la planificación turística de Presidente Figueiredo, garantizando de forma sostenible el control y monitoreo permanente de visitas en estos atractivos de la región.

          Abstract Assessing the carrying capacity of tourist attractions is essential for measuring and monitoring the impact of users visiting attraction sites, both private and public, especially those in protected areas. Without proper planning, conventional tourism can promote environmental degradation along the trails of attraction sites in the Amazon region. The objective of this study was to determine the tourist carrying capacity (TCC) of trails in tourist attraction sites in the Presidente Figueiredo municipality, state of Amazonas, Brazil, considering the degree of forest degradation in these locations. TCC was determined using the method of Cifuentes et al. (1999), which classifies carrying capacity into three levels: physical (PCC), actual (ACC), and effective (ECC). The results identified trails with a highly satisfactory ECC: "Neblina" (77 visitors day-1), "C. Iracema Falls" (90 visitors day-1), and "Cachoeira da Onça" (39 visitors day-1). In addition, there was moderate forest degradation along the trails of the "Perema" (40.3%), "Sanctuary" (26.9%), "Galo da Serra" (26.9%), and "Pedra Furada" (26.1%) attraction sites. These results could support tourism planning in Presidente Figueiredo to control and implement regular monitoring to attain sustainable tourism.

          Ecosystem services classification: A systems ecology perspective of the cascade framework

          Highlights • Different ecosystem service definitions and interpretations create too much ambiguity. • The cascade model is used as framework, and Systems Ecology as theoretical basis. • The notions of biomass information and interaction enrich a refreshed conceptualization. • The cascade framework shifts from a ‘two dimensional’ to a ‘telescopic’ perspective. • This perspective can emphasize the ecological dimension and its complex reality.
