JAU NATIONAL PARK
The National Park of Jau is considered the largest area in the world of sheltered tropical forest, with an estimated coverage
of 2,2 million hectares with great biodiversity. It protects the entire watershed of the Jaú River, one of the best examples
of a blackwater ecosystem, where the water is coloured by acidic decomposing organic matter, and a large area of undisturbed
dry tropical forest. The park protects both the hydrological basin of the river, and many of the species associated with the
system in an area large enough to contain major ecological and biological processes such as wind-blows, floods and natural
burns, providing large-scale opportunities to study their effect on the biodiversity of natural ecosystems.
