“Around 90,000 species of flowering plants, 550,000 fungi, 13,500 lichens, 7,000 bryophytes, 3,400 pteridophytes, 150 gymnosperms and 6,000 algae thrive in the Neotropics.”
Approximately 37% of the world’s plant species live in the Neotropical region. To put this number in perspective, It is more than tropical Africa (30,000–35,000 species) and tropical Asia and Oceania combined (40,000–82,000 species). There are two main patterns of plant distribution in the Neotropics: one is the “Amazonian-centered” and the other is the “Andean-centered”. Those groups that are species-rich in one of these centers tend to be relatively poor in the other, so like in any other region, plant species are not evenly distributed within the Neotropics.
Our flora expeditions are specially designed for those who enjoy watching and photographing plants in their natural habitat, while enjoying other natural and cultural aspects of the countries visited. Our flora tours run in every Neotropical country, from Mexico to Argentina.
All of our tours are customized to suit our clients’ wishes and they run on a private basis, allowing great flexibility for making the most of your journey to Latin America.
Here’s a list of suggested flora tours to help you planning for your Neotropical travel adventure, but please bear in mind that Trogon Tours runs tours in every country in the Neotropics, so please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries.
