Congolian rainforests
Congolian rainforest ecoregions: 2. Atlantic Equatorial coastal forests, 6. Central Congolian lowland forests 7. Eastern Congolian swamp forests, 8. Western Congolian swamp forests, 9. Northeastern Congolian forests, 15. Northwestern Congolian lowland forests
Realm Afrotropic
Biome Tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forests

The Congolian rainforests are a broad belt of lowland tropical moist broadleaf forests which extend across the basin of the Congo River and its tributaries in Central Africa .

ContentsGeography[ edit ]

The Congolian forests cover southeastern Cameroon , Gabon , the Republic of the Congo , the northern and central Democratic Republic of the Congo , and portions of southern and southwestern Central African Republic .

Ecology[ edit ]

The Congolian rainforest is the world's second-largest tropical forest , spans six countries, and contains a quarter of the world's remaining tropical forest. With annual forest loss of 0.3% during the 2000s, the region has the lowest deforestation rate of any major tropical forest zone.

To the north, south, and southwest, the forests transition to drier forest-savanna mosaic , a mosaic of drier forests, savannas , and grasslands . To the west, the Congolian forests transition to the coastal Lower Guinean forests , which extend from southwestern Cameroon into southern Nigeria and Benin ; these forests zones share many similarities and are sometimes known as the Lower Guinean-Congolian forests. To the east, the lowland Congolian forests transition to the highland Albertine Rift montane forests , which cover the mountains lining the Albertine Rift , a branch of the East African Rift system. The Congolian Forests are a global 200 ecoregion .

Ecoregions[ edit ]

The World Wide Fund for Nature divides the Congolian forests into several distinct ecoregions :

Atlantic Equatorial coastal forests (Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Republic of the Congo, Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo) Northwestern Congolian lowland forests (Cameroon, Central African Republic, Gabon, Republic of Congo) Western Congolian swamp forests (Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo) Eastern Congolian swamp forests (Democratic Republic of the Congo) Central Congolian lowland forests (Democratic Republic of the Congo) Northeastern Congolian lowland forests (Democratic Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic)See also[ edit ] Lower Guinean forests Flora of West-Central Tropical Africa References[ edit ] "Congo Basin Forest Partnership" .
