La Costa xeric shrublands

WWF Abstract

No two parts of this desert ecoregion are exactly alike. As the ecoregion stretches along the Caribbean coast of Venezuela, it moves from flat plains to hills to occasional mountains. Venezuelan llanos savanna gives way to dry forests in one area, moist forests in another area, and swamp and scrub habitats in yet another. Mangroves, lagoons, and sandy coastlines--as well as a patchwork of agricultural lands--contribute to this desert mosaic.
