Atlantic Forest (96) More files... by Dr. Mark W. Moffett
A biodiverstiy hotspot, the Atlantic Forest or Mata Atlantica, covering a mere 38,000 square miles of its original 520,000 square miles is just a remnant of its original size. In spite of the fact that the majority of the Atlantic forest exists only in isolated patches, it still boasts one of the highest levels of biodiversity and endemism in the world. Unfortunately, small patches of forest may not be enough to sustain populations of the various endemic plants and wildlife.Text by Dr. Mark W. Moffett.
