Cameroonian Highlands forests

WWF Abstract

This ecoregion encompasses the long chain of mountains that stretch inland from the Gulf of Guinea along the borders of both Nigeria and Cameroon. Mt. Cameroon is an active volcano that sits near the coast and rises from this impressive mountain range, but it is considered a separate ecoregion from the older, non-volcanic Cameroonian Highlands Forests. Still, the two ecoregions share several endemic species, including 50 species of plants.
