Mount Cameroon and Bioko montane forests

WWF Abstract

Diversity and richness describe the Mount Cameroon and Bioko Montane Forest ecoregion. A series of volcanic eruptions in this region over the past several hundred years has created a patchwork of varied habitats--montane forests, montane grasslands, and heathland. The montane forests occur in patches on the tops of Mount Cameroon and on the island of Bioko. This ecoregion is distinguished from surrounding forests by its isolation and species composition. On the slopes of recently erupted volcanoes such as Mount Cameroon and St. Isobel, you can find plants and animals that occur nowhere else on Earth.
