Wingbeats to the Amazon - The Secrets of Nature


Almendro Tree of Life - The Secrets of Nature

The Almendro Tree must be the most impressive of all the jungle giants in Costa Rica's rainforest. From root to top, this unique tree offers habitats, shelter and nourishment to an incredible number of creatures. Whenever an Almendro goes down, almost the entire community goes down with it, demonstrating the fragility of interdependent systems. A dramatic example of this principle is the Great Green Macaw. Wherever the tree disappears, the parrot no longer is found.

Jungle Amazon ( I´m loving South America )

I´m loving South America - Travel Agency. The trip of your life is here.
We are an agency specialized in trips around Central and South America package tours with free personalized service to foreigners.

The region is home to about 2.5 million insect species, tens of thousands of plants, and some 2,000 birds and mammals. To date, at least 40,000 plant species, 2,200 fishes, 1,294 birds, 427 mammals, 428 amphibians, and 378 reptiles have been scientifically classified in the region. One in five of all the bird species in the world live in the rainforests of the Amazon, and one in five of the fish species live in Amazonian rivers and streams. Scientists have described between 96,660 and 128,843 invertebrate species in Brazil alone.
The biodiversity of plant species is the highest on Earth with some experts estimating that one square kilometer (247 acres) may contain more than a thousand types of trees and thousands of species of other higher plants. According to a 2001 study, a quarter square kilometer (62 acres) of Ecuadorian rainforest supports more than 1,100 tree species.
One square kilometer (247 acres) of Amazon rainforest can contain about 90,790 tonnes of living plants. The average plant biomass is estimated at 356 ± 47 tonnes per hectare. To date, an estimated 438,000 species of plants of economic and social interest have been registered in the region with many more remaining to be discovered or catalogued.

A Sampling of Birds of the Amazon

Magnificent Birds of Borneo

Sabah is located on the northern most tip of Borneo and because of the varied habitats contained within its borders, supports one of the most stunning arrays of flora and fauna. This includes an amazingly abundant bird life that is becoming a star attraction for birders and nature enthusiasts from around the world.

Sabah has a remarkable range of habitats from montane forest to peat swamp, lowland rainforest to interior plains, and from the largest floodplain in Malaysia to coastal regions and islands that offer a truly exciting and rewarding experience for bird watchers.

A total of 688 resident and migratory species of birds have been recorded for Borneo, with 60 endemic species. Of major interest is the fact that many of these endemic species are found on either Sabah’s hill slopes or in its montane forest. The number of montane species is so significant that Mt Kinabalu, at 4,095m and one of the highest mountains in South East Asia is regarded as a distribution centre for all of Borneo’s montane birds. The lowland forest is home to more than 300 species of many colourful birds.

Locations to see these birds are easily accessible with comfortable place to stay.

The Iron Forest - The Secrets of Nature

The youngest of Austria’s national parks is also the country’s biggest continuous forest area. Ten million trees make the labyrinthine, fissured karst formations of the Reichraming and Sensen mountain ranges an endless green wilderness. But these mountain forests that were originally almost impenetrable lie in the midst of Austria’s iron industry. For more than a thousand years, it supplied the fuel for smelting iron from innumerable little mines in the region, especially from the Styrian Erzberg.

Viennas Forests, Jewels of Green - The Secrets of Nature

Vienna's forests make a visual impact on the city's scenery -- being a source of life and sanctuary at the same time: They are omnipresent and an enormous asset, taken for granted by many. Perhaps no other European capital boasts so many acres of forest per inhabitant. There are the well-known Vienna woods in the west and north, the national park of the Danube wetlands to the east, and numerous groves and green corridors right amidst built-up urban space.
