The Cerrado bioregion, located in the Southern America (Neotropical) realm, covers more than one-fifth of Brazil’s total land area and consists of two ecoregions – Campos Rupestres Montane Savanna (566) Cerrado (567) – with gallery forests running along the streams and rivers. The bioregion is considered to be one of the richest tropical savannas in the world, containing 10,000 plant species, 200 mammal species, and 10 endemic bird species. The total area of this bioregion is 194 million hectares.
