Paraná flooded savanna

WWF Abstract

Patches of flooded grassland line the southern Paraná River Valley from Buenos Aires north to Resistencia. This ecoregion was originally one of the most extensive mosaics of riverine and wetland habitat in South America, but it now contains the majority of the human population of Argentina. As a result, the region has been largely converted to agricultural, industrial, and residential uses. Isolated tracts of remaining habitat cling to the edge of the river in areas where development cannot reach.
