cerrado ecology
 

The cerrado is the second most widespread vegetation type in Brazil and covered originally ca. 20% of the Brazilian territory, especially in the central Plateau. The cerrado vegetation is not uniform in physiognomy, going from grassland to tall woodland, but with most physiognomies within the range defined as savanna. Although frequently neglected, the cerrado vegetation stands out in its high floristic richness, with ca. 7,000 vascular plant species. Since the 1960s, the cerrado region is being heavily occupied, what is causing its fast destruction. The cerrado was included among the hotspots for conservation in the world due to its high richness, high degree of endemism, and current conservation status.
