Face of Amazon today

    Amazon is composed of three woods which are the wood of " Terra Firme", the wood of "Varzea" and the wood of "Igapo".
   
The wood of "Terra Firme" is made of formidable trees, it's the biggest and it's is rich of "hard" species. The wood of "Varsea" was the first wood to be utilized. It is rich of "white" species as palm-trees. The last called wood of "Igapo" is a boggy land practically not exploited.

Each year Amazon looses about 4,3 billion hectares which represents one football's terrain each 5 seconds.
