Madagascar subhumid forests

WWF Abstract

Madagascar, the fourth largest island in the world, sits just off the southeast coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean. Isolation from neighboring continents for 150-180 million years created a "living laboratory" for evolution, and the rich biodiversity leads some scientists to call Madagascar the "seventh continent." The sub-humid forests on the island are scattered like emeralds throughout the central plateau, surrounded by degraded forests, secondary grasslands, and exotic tree plantations.
