Landscape of Guatemala: Cloudforests
Cloud forests are a type of evergreen mountain forest found in tropical areas. Usually lying at an elevation between 1000 and 2500 m the local conditions cause cloud and mist to be frequently in contact with the forest vegetation. Cloud foresrs are characterized by an abundance of mosses, ferns, orchids and other epiphytic plants on every tree and rock surface.
