Angolan Miombo woodlands

WWF Abstract

This ecoregion is comprised of moist, deciduous broadleaf savannas and woodlands interspersed with open grasslands and meadows. Gently undulating hills are drained by rivers flowing eastward into the Zambezi River basin. The area experiences a tropical climate with most of the rain occurring in the summer months. Here forest and savanna plants and creatures mix and form a diverse ecosystem. Civil war broke out in the 1970s in this ecoregion, however, and its effects are still being felt. Few scientists have access to this area, so no one knows for sure how well its wildlife has survived the conflict.
