Brazil - Comments
Brazil has a rare cultural richness, but political views are often blind and do not want to take it into account. It's deeply divided into two parts of very different political expectations, one oriented towards an attempt at social and environmental improvement, encompassing a vast population of different social classes and therefore a broader vision of the future,
the other is concerned only with profit and financial profitability for a social class that has little vision for its own sake and does not pay much attention to populations of social classes who are poor or excluded because of their origin. The notion of a citizen is absent and patriotism departs from it with authoritarian accents.
The political gestures of both the left and the right (bribes, arrangements between political parties and their simulations of political advances, all supported by a communication system in a situation of monopoly (right of course, obviously as is GLOBO Group and Co.)
have only aggravated the sense of impugnity and willful immobility of an elected social class simply for the sake of its wallet.
Needless to say, information in this country is almost nonexistent, only information directed to keep the people in ignorance and constant fear that will accompany it over the days.
The violence is only increasing and can not have the same answer in return because it has always shown its limits and the lack of results.
Only future generations will be able to change course in governance after taking into account the lack of results of past policies dedicated to sinking ...
Attracted long time by the Kingdom Plantae, which is one of the natural riches that make up our environment, this site aims to raise awareness of biomass Cerrado. it is needless to say that biomass is one of those geographical areas massacred by financial interests and irresponsible policies that respect nothing since only count the profits. A fine example of what can be human action ever, for a large majority, to distinguish themselves catastrophically in recent decades !!! ... The approach witch I proposed here is mainly guided by the presentation of some plants, flowers in the majority, shrubs or fruits.
Flowering plants encountered here are shown by color (on this subject, the same species can occur in different colors). Various selection options are available from the Detailed classification of plants where access is available from each page catalog, but the botanical data are still limited to be recorded. Gradually this is done ...
Finally, some information may be found in the botanical families which information is probably doomed to be modified due to advances in research technology. Last corrections made on 30/07/2018
The Cerrado has a type of vegetation composing brazilian phytogeography and it is also the second most important vegetation cover of the country (occupies 24% of the national territory), surpassed only by the Amazon rainforest.
It is extended over eleven States of Brazil and also in the Federal District; it is considered as the cradle of the waters of the country. However, its surface has deeply decreased along the years width the human intervention. The region of Cerrado has a tropical climate with two well defined seasons (which can be modified by climatic changes):
* a rainy period (October till April), * another dry one, from May till September.
It covers the states of the Central-West region of Brazil like the State of Goiás, the State of Mato Grosso, the States of Mato Grosso do Sul and of Distrito Federal, as well as the southern states of Pará and Maranhão, the interior of Tocantins, part of the west of the State of Bahia, as well as the three-quarters of the State of Minas Gerais (western part of the Cordillera do Espinhasse) and the northern of the State of São Paulo.
A vegetation consisting, in principle, by species that adapt to the two distinct seasons (as occurs in the Midwest), deciduous and with deep roots (and small, with twisted branches and thick sheets). The Cerrado comprises various characteristics of vegetation, being, that way, classified into sub systems: field, cerrado, cerradão (big cerrado), woods, riparian woods, paths, and wetland environments, etc.
In general, the grounds are poor and very acid.
The various landscapes of Cerrado..
Some photos are available to show the regions enclosed in the area covered by the biomass Cerrado, but we only present here the places with particularities or the beauty of nature.
A great part of the country is constituted of a mountainous relief crossed by valleys with streams or more or less important rivers. This part of Brazil is considered the center of waters of the country. Hence, many rivers (Tocantins, etc) will descend by the north, or the east to irrigate regions and states (Click on the image above).
The Cordillera of Espinhass. (State of Minas Gerais to the south and Bahia to the north)
Relatively long chain of mountains (around 1000 km) and narrow (width between 50 km and 100 km), it is crossed by numerous valleys and peaks. This cordillera is responsible for the river supply networks division between the São Francisco river and the other streams that will throw directly into the Atlantic Ocean. To the north are the mountains forming the ChapadaDiamantina in the State of Bahia (Click on the image below).
