Bio Diversity

Introduction

The variation of geology, soils and rainfall over the CWCBR has produced a region with great bio diversity. The soils in particular, with a gradual transition from calcareous sands to acid soils, and a juxtaposition of these soils with those of the shales and granites have a marked influence on vegetation. The result is a rich flora with over 1500 species within the CWCBR.
