The Northern Amazonian bioregion, located in the Southern America (Neotropical) realm, lies between the Amazon River and the Guiana Shield and includes the Rio Negro, the principle northern tributary of the Amazon. The bioregion consists entirely of moist tropical forests, containing five ecoregions – Gurupa Várzea (467), Japurá-Solimões-Negro Moist Forests (473), Negro-Branco Moist Forests (484), Rio Negro Campinarana (498), Uatumã-Trombetas Moist Forests (511) — as well as the largest biological reserve in Brazil. The total area of this bioregion is approximately 105 million hectares.
