Rio Negro campinarana

WWF Abstract

Campinaranas, or "heath forests," are forest mosaics with vegetation types ranging from open herbaceous savannas to closed canopy forests. These patches occur on the transition between the Guyana Shield and Amazon basin. Here, vegetation types depend more on the soil type than on rainfall or temperature. Some campinarana patches cover thousands of square kilometers, while others are much smaller and irregularly shaped.
