Igapó forest typical of the Brazilian Amazon
The Igapó Forest is made up of smaller plants, bathed by the dark waters of the main river, the Rio Negro. Located on low ground, the main composition of the forest are plants of small height and aquatic plants, in addition to having many vines.

Mata de Várzea is flooded by white water rivers. The main rivers are the Amazon, the Solimões River and the Madeira River. In the floodplain forest are found the largest plants such as assacu, kapok, copaiba, andiroba among other species. They are formed in the least rainy season, when the Mata de Várzea drought occurs.
