Abstract

Camels are commonly identified with the Old World but they are also to be found in South America. There, four species - alpacas, llamas, vicunas, and guanacos - have adapted themselves to the severe climate of the high Andes. They play an important role in the economies of Peru and Bolivia, and to a lesser extent in those of Chile, Argentina, and Ecuador. -Author
