The Andean Cordillera is a unique enviroment where snow-capped mountains coexist with their jungle-covered flanks. Here, where the sun burns at its most intense, the diversity of microclimates accelerates the pace of evolution. Rain soaked jungles coexist with arid altipolanos. The intense heat of the lowlands quickly gives way to the bitter cold of higher elevations. There are no annual seasons at the equator, but in the high Andes every day can be like summer and every night like winter.
