The Uruguayan Savanna: A Rich Tapestry of Grasslands and Biodiversity

The Uruguayan savanna, also known as the Brazilian-Uruguayan savanna, stretches across the southern region of the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, encompasses the entirety of Uruguay, and extends into a small portion of Argentina along the Uruguay River. This ecoregion, characterized by subtropical grasslands and savannas, offers a mosaic of habitats, including medium-tall grasslands, gallery forests, palm savannas, and submontane forests.
