Based on the biophysical and socioecological primary information collected and analyzed by the authors in two geotopes of the rice growing area of the Ibague region (Colombia, south America), an ecological study of the rice landscape is offered by means of using the GTP method (Geosystem, Territory, and Landscape) of Bertrand. We aspire to obtain an integrated vision of this environment on the scale of geotopos. It is shown that these spatial units can support a study of an “environmental landscape” inspired by Bertrand’s epistemology. T he research applies the principles of the GTP, traditionally conceived for the study of the geosystem, on a much smaller scale. As a practical contribution and given the important information of the recorded flora and fauna, policy recommendations for its management are proposed in the conclusions
