Meandering River in Complex Landscape in Northern Paraguay

Paraguay is located at the confluence of a number of globally important ecoregions, namely the upper Paraná Atlantic Forest, the Cerrado, the Argentine Mesopotamian Grasslands, the Chaco (Humid and Dry) and the Pantanal. The southward-flowing Paraguay River divides the country into two distinct regions: the relatively flat Chaco to the west of the river, and the more topographically diverse “Oriente” to the east.

Soy and rice cultivation (visible in lower left) is expanding in the region.
