The Amazon accounts for over a third of the world’s forest reserves. Its main features are the big and wide trees (broadleaf species), close to one another and joined by vines and epiphytes (plants that rely on others). Because of the climate, hot and rainy, it promotes plant growth and reproduction of animals throughout the whole year, making the Amazon forest home to the most varied flora of the planet.
