Bolivia’s wide altitudinal amplitude, ranging from 90 to 6,542 metres (295 to 21,463 ft.) above sea level, allow for a vast biologic diversity. There are 4 different biomes, 32 ecological regions, and 199 ecosystems many of them preserved within the boundaries of several national parks and reserves, such as Noel Kempff Mercado, Madidi, Gran Chaco and Tunari National Parks to name but a few.
Bolivia comprises 1,098,580 km² (424,164 sq mi) of territory, of which 14,190 km² (5,479 sq mi) is water and is the 28th largest country in the world.
