Puerto Rican dry forests

WWF Abstract

Most of Puerto Rico is covered in moist tropical forest, however along the southern coast and on several neighboring islands are several regions of seasonal dry forest. These dry forests extend as a strip along the southern coast, and only extend inland 10 to 20 miles to the foothills. In this narrow strip however is a great diversity of species specially adapted to life on the dry side -- including tody flycatchers and endemic Puerto Rican nightjars.
