Vegetation and wildlife

The vegetation of Ecuador is divided into several large areas. Dry bush vegetation is characteristic of the Costa. In some areas (Gulf of Guayaquil) there are still intact mangrove forests on the Pacific coast. The savannas are heavily used for agriculture. Dry forests grow on the flat and stony soils of the mountain slopes; most of the trees there shed their leaves during the long dry season. The outside of the Cordilleras is made up of tropical mountain and cloud forests.

The dry interior of the Cordilleras (Sierra) is characterized by mostly treeless landscapes. The grass and perennial vegetation of the Páramos begins at around 3,500 m above sea level. Cushion plants and very large rosette plants of the genus Espeletia grow from 4,000 m above sea level; the snow line is between 4,500 and 4,700 m above sea level. Check harvardshoes to see North America Overview.

In the north of the highlands between the parallel chains of the Andes, grasslands dominate, which are used for agriculture. There are also eucalyptus trees grown (especially the kind of fever rubber tree) and pine wood for production, however, adversely affect the water balance of the soil. In the south of the highlands a bush vegetation was created on the less fertile soils by human influences. On the eastern slopes of the Andes there is a mountain rainforest between 700 m and 2,500 m above sea level. There many mosses, lichens, bromeliads and orchids grow epiphytically on trees. Cloud forest then extends up to 3,600 m above sea level.

In the Orient, lowland rainforests predominate, the treetops of which are around 30 m high. Around 200–240 tree species grow here per hectare. The biodiversity is highest in the tropical forests. In addition to hundreds of different species of bromeliad, there are also around 3,000 species of orchids. The wealth of exotic fruits is also great, e.g. B. Grenadillas.

With an estimated nearly 25,000 plant species, the small country is home to almost 10% of all species known worldwide. – There is an independent flora on the Galápagos Islands.

Just as diverse as the landscape, climate and vegetation is the fauna of Ecuador, which despite its small size is one of the most biodiverse countries on earth; around 8% of the world’s known animals live here. There are around 325 species of mammals in Ecuador, including more than 100 species of bats (including blood-drinking vampire bats) and 17 species of monkeys (including night, woolly and jumper monkeys).

Important predators are the jaguar, puma, ocelot and spectacled bear, the ungulates are comparatively poor in species, but have some notable forms, such as B. several forest-dwelling tapir species that belong to the odd-toed ungulates, and the New World camels with vicuna and guanaco that occur in the Andes.

The llamas and alpacas are descended from them as pets. The guinea pigs are among the most famous rodents in Ecuador. The order of secondary animals with sloths, anteaters and armadillos, which is restricted to South America, is also represented.

The bird world is very species-rich with over 1,600 species (around 18% of all known species), including with about 130 hummingbird species, toucans and the huge, endangered Andean condor with a wingspan of about 3 m.

Numerous colorful parrots, especially macaws, are also now among the highly endangered birds.

The species-rich reptile fauna includes v. a. Iguanas and rail lizards (Tejus), but also numerous turtles and snakes. Idol snake (Boa constrictor) and the highly water-bound anaconda are examples of giant snakes. Venomous snakes are coral snakes, bushmasters and other highly venomous pit vipers.

A very rare crocodile, the black caiman, also lives here. Frequently occurring amphibians are numerous tree frogs and the colorful poison dart frogs, whose skin secretions are used by the Indians to produce arrow poisons.

The number of invertebrates is almost unmanageable , especially arachnids (e.g. tarantulas, scorpions) and insects. The Galápagos Islands are home to their own fauna, with many endemics only occurring there.

Nature conservation: Ecuador has 12 national parks, including the Sangay National Park, which, like the Galápagos Islands marine reserve , is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
