Atlantic dry forests

WWF Abstract

The Atlantic Dry Forests ecoregion occurs in patches extending from north to south between the Cerrado Grasslands and Caatinga Scrub ecoregions of eastern Brazil. The climate is mostly tropical, receiving between 34 and 39 inches (850 and 1,000 mm) of rain annually and having a five-month dry season. The topography is flat, with occasional rolling hills. Tropical deciduous and semi-deciduous dry forests, interspersed with patches of open scrub and savanna vegetation, dominate the ecoregion.
