Jamaican moist forests

WWF Abstract

Trade-wind clouds enshroud the John Crow and Blue Mountains in Jamaica, disappearing only during extremely dry and still weather. Jamaica’s Moist Forest ecoregion blankets these mountains, with more than 600 flowering plant species growing here, 275 of them endemic to Jamaica. The largest butterfly in the Western Hemisphere, the Jamaican swallowtail, darts through the trees on yellow and black wings.
