the north section, natural vegetation is found in coastal and sub-coastal
evergreen woods located mainly in the zone of punta Covarrubias,
in the entrance of the Bay of Malagueta.
Wild flora has been quite affected by human activities; however
it can be found in coastal sectors, associated to the vegetation
of mangrove-tree communities and typical semi-deciduous woods. An
example of this is the Copernicia rigida, found to the south of
the bay of Malagueta.
Towards the center and east of the region, there is a predominance
of cultural vegetation, alternated with pastures, natural prairies,
and secondary vegetation. Wild flora is linked to the remains of
rosewood communities, with their typical inventory of endemic species,
much impoverished in this case.
Towards the south, vegetation is quite deforested, except for the
littoral strip covered by thick mangrove-tree communities. Semi-natural
vegetation appears in form of semi-deciduous woods of fluctuating
humidity. Wild flora is associated to mangrove-tree communities
and coastal marshlands.
