Bolivian montane dry forests

WWF Abstract

The Bolivian Montane Dry Forests ecoregion is located in the dry montane valleys of southern central Bolivia and extends in patches along the central and eastern Andes Mountains to western Bolivia. This ecoregion is extremely rugged, with many steep hillsides, cliffs, and countless valleys and gullies. This dry forest habitat is the transition area between puna grasslands at higher elevations to the west and Chaco scrub to the east. Habitat types in these arid valleys consist mainly of seasonal dry forest, wetland forest along rivers, and dry, sparsely vegetated slopes with shrubs and columnar cactus formations.
