Maranhao Babatu forests

WWF Abstract

This ecoregion is located at the very eastern and southern edges of the Amazon Basin in eastern Brazil. The northern tip lies at the head of San Marcos Bay, and then the forests follow the Pinaré River west and south to an area of low hills. Rivers that drain to the Atlantic Ocean weave over the flat and gently rolling contours of this landscape, where the elevation ranges from sea level to 500 feet (155 m). Rainfall ranges from 40 to 60 inches each year (1,016 – 1,524 mm), but there is a five- to six-month drought when less than four inches (101 mm) of rain falls each month.
