This article is the first inventory of aquatic macroinvertebrates and the phytobenthic community present in the Yulo Wetland (Cundinamarca, Colombia) well as an approximation of the water quality of the wetland. Preliminarily has recorded a total of 9 algal phytobenthic genres and 7 families of aquatic macroinvertebrates. In actuality, the Yulo wetland shows an advanced state of eutrophication and moderate pollution water. However the Regional Corporation of Cundinamarca Auntonoma (CAR) with the Environmental Engineering Program is leading the development of environmental management plans to reduce the impact caused by the contamination of Bogota River, agricultural activities, livestock and urban planning.
