Angolan montane forest-grassland mosaic

WWF Abstract

This area is a mosaic of vegetation types. Surrounded by open grasslands are networks of small montane forest patches. These patches are restricted to the deep ravines or remote valleys of the highest mountains, reaching up to 8,500 feet (2,620 m) on Mt. Môco. The forest patches range in size from 2 to 50 acres (1-20 hectares) and have a relatively low and sporadic canopy ranging from 26 to 50 feet (8-15 m) in height.
