Southern Annamites montane rain forests

WWF Abstract

These dense montane forests hold many secrets, including a species that has never been seen, but was described from a few horns, and a mythical forest man that the Vietnamese call Nguoi Rung. It takes two weeks of walking through a mine- and bomb-filled landscape to reach the ecoregion's most remote areas. Although the details of this tropical ecoregion's plants and animals are poorly known, scientists do know that the region's biodiversity is globally outstanding.
