Central Zambezian Miombo woodlands

WWF Abstract

The Central Zambezian Miombo Woodlands is a densely forested ecoregion that covers much of Central and East Africa. Trees grow to heights of 50 to 65 feet (15-20 m), rising over a broadleaf shrub understory with grassland underneath. Mostly deciduous, these forests provide habitat for many large mammals--including rhinos, buffaloes, elephants, and antelopes--as well as many reptiles and birds.
