Cordillera Central páramo

WWF Abstract

The Cordillera Central Páramo is covered in vegetation that spreads across the high plain like a thick carpet. Bunchgrass and cushion plants grow alongside shrubs, sedges, and an underlying mat of lichens and moss. This shrubby alpine grassland is bordered at lower elevations by montane cloud forests and elfin forests.
