Southeast Asia rainforest map

return to gallery

The rainforests of southeast Asia and associated island archipelagos match the African and topical American forest for diversity of plants and animals. However, of the three, southeast Asia has the lowest proportion of original forest remaining. The most significant areas, in terms of size and biological diversity, are on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, which are part of Indonesia, and the island of New Guinea. Australia, which is mostly desert, has a small but biologically important region of rainforest in the far north of the country in Queensland. (Countries without significant areas are not labelled.)
