Azores temperate mixed forests

WWF Abstract

Rising from the floor of the North Atlantic Ocean, hundreds of miles from any continent, are the Azores--a set of volcanic islands that house the Azores Temperate Mixed Forests ecoregion. The islands are home to dense evergreen forests, damp cloud forests, and short "elfin" forests that reach no taller than 3 feet (1 m). Despite the earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that are common here, bats, birds, and all other biodiversity have adapted to life on these isolated volcanic islands.
