Campos Rupestres montane savanna

WWF Abstract

High in the Espinhaço Mountains of eastern Brazil is a patchwork of grasslands known as the Campos Rupestres Montane Savanna. This ecoregion is a chain of relatively small patches of grassland in a landscape dominated by montane and lowland forests. These isolated habitats contain an extraordinary number of endemic species. And 66 percent of the 538 threatened species in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais are found here.
