About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Portuguese

Brazil accounts for as much as 20% of the flowering plants in the world. But while popular perceptions of natural history in Brazil frequently focus on the Amazon or the Mata Atlantica as areas in special need of conservation action, the drylands of northeastern Brazil receive much less attention. The drylands in their own way are equally important botanically and also present special challenges for conservation. The aim of this book is to build an increased appreciation of the beauty and importance of the Chapada Diamantina to help to ensure the future of a unique - and underappreciated - part of Brazil's extraordinary natural heritage.
