The Solomon Islands bioregion, located in the Australasia realm, is an archipelago of six major islands and hundreds of minor islands and islets in the Solomon Sea, just above the Coral Sea. It is the central grouping of islands in Melanesia. These islands, totaling approximately 3.5 million hectares of land, are dominated by one ecoregion – Solomon Islands Rain Forests  – and are known for a diversity of plant life, including more than 230 species of orchid. This bioregion contains several active volcanoes.
