Map of Biomes

Mapped for the first time, the six continental Brazilian biomes – Amazônia, Cerrado, Caatinga, Mata Atlântica, Pantanal and Pampa – are presented on the Map of the Biomes of Brazil, as a result of a partnership between IBGE and the Ministry of Environment (MMA). Similarly to the 2004 Map of Vegetation of Brazil, which served as reference, the Map of Biomes of Brazil joined the "Wall Maps" series of IBGE, which includes other themes such as relief, soils, geology, federal conservation units, fauna and flora.

In wall size and 1: 5,000,000 scale, the two maps were released in celebration of the World Biodiversity Day (May 22).
