Marianas tropical dry forests

WWF Abstract

If you visit the Mariana Islands in western Micronesia, you'll get a fascinating geologic journey. In the southern part of the chain, you can see islands more than 30 million years old made of coral limestone and weathered volcanic rock. In the northern part, you'll see geologically young islands that include the still active Farallon de Pájaros volcano. You'll find that the vegetation differs quite a lot from north to south, for reasons of both geology and human activity.
