Puerto Rican moist forests

WWF Abstract

Montane forests are restricted to the Luquillo Mountains and the higher peaks of the Cordillera Central. Forests such as these are spectacular, with trees reaching 110 feet (34 m) in height and 8 feet (2.5 m) in diameter. Nearly 200 tree species are found in these very old forests, the wettest in Puerto Rico, and they harbor ancient species of mammals and insects.
