Many ecological zones are represented within Bolivia’s territory. The western highlands of the country are situated in the Andes Mountains and include the Bolivian Altiplano. The eastern lowlands, continuing into Brazil, include large sections of Amazonian rainforests and the Chaco Plain.

This FAPAR image highlights the differences in vegetation between those ecological zones. Forest areas with a high level of photosynthetic activity appear dark red to dark green, while the dry altiplano appears light yellow to white.
