About Flora & Fauna
Many people are interested in flora and wild flowers and not only like to know when they bloom, but also where they are. So we dedicate this page to descriptions and beautiful photos of the most interesting flora.
Plants from The Amazonia
However, when you go to the Amazon jungle do not expect to see an abundant flowering of one or a few species of flowers: the jungle is so rich in species that it almost never shows a large number of plants or trees blooming in abundance. The flowers appear unexpectedly, one jewel at a time. To better explain the ecology of the rainforest, we selected photos of Amazonian flowers from our photo collection. The warm and humid conditions of the rain forest provide optimal conditions for the plants. Consequently, many more species are found in the tropics than in temperate climates. Currently more than 600,000 plant species have been identified for the rainforest and scientists are still discovering new species and giving them names of jungle plants every day.
Wildlife among the Amazon rainforest
The Amazon hosts more species of plants and animals than any other ecosystem on the planet. Perhaps 30% of the species on Earth are here. Its biodiversity is surprising: a single Amazon shrub can have more ant species than all the British Isles, and a single hectare of forest can have more than 480 species of trees.
