Bolivia – April 16th, 2013

Bolivia has a huge degree of biodiversity, considered one of the greatest in the world; as well as several ecoregions with such ecological subunits as the Altiplano, tropical rainforests (including Amazon rainforest), dry valleys, and the Chiquitania, which is a tropical savanna. All of these feature enormous variations in altitude, from an elevation of 6,542 meters above sea level in Nevado Sajama, to nearly 70 meters along the Paraguay River.

Here, green vegetation can be seen northeast of the Andes Mountains, in Bolivia, in the tropical, forested portion of the country. Across the mountains, however, lies the arid, sparsely vegetated altiplano portion of the nation, which includes the bright white salt flats of the Salar de Uyuni.
