Camila┬┤s scientific research focuses on understanding the ecology of plants in different types of tropical forests, which she has had the opportunity to also illustrate. In particular, she has worked in lowland tropical wet forests in Panama, and montane and dry tropical forests in Colombia. Tropical forests are extremely complex, artistically challenging, and beautiful. Plants and animals depicted in these illustrations are species typical of each type of forest. Above, an illustration of a tropical dry forest. The gallery below includes illustrations of mangrove forest, lowland tropical wet, and montane tropical forests.
