Paragraph : Amazon Rainforest

Amazon Rainforest

It is a large, tropical rainforest occupying the drainage basin of the Amazon River and its tributaries in northern South  America and covering an area of 2,300,000 square miles. Comprising about 40 percent of Brazil's total area, it is bounded by the Guiana Highlands to the northe, the Andes Mountain Ramges to the west, the Brazilian central plateau to the south and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. The Amazon Rainforest is the world's richest and most varied biological reservoir, containing several million species of insects, plants, birds and other forms of life, many still unrecorded by science. The luxuriant vegetation encompasses a wide variety of trees, including many species of myrtle, laurel, palm and acacia as well as rosewood, Brazil nut, rubber tree, mahogany and the Amazonian cedar. Major wildlife includes jaguar, manatee, tapir, red deer, capybara and many other types of rodents and several types of monkeys. The immense extent and great continuity of this rainforest is a reflection of the high rainfall, high humidity and monotonously high temperature that prevail in the region.
