Jos Plateau forest-grassland mosaic

WWF Abstract

The Jos Plateau rises out of the middle of Nigeria, to the largest land mass over 1000 m in the country. The high altitude and cool temperatures combine to draw rainfall from passing clouds. This heavy rainfall nourishes small relict patches of rain forest found on the southwest slopes of the plateau.
