The World Wide Fund for Nature has published a report about the last decade of research work in the Amazon.
“Amazon Alive!: A Decade of Discoveries 1999-2009” describes the huge range of plant and vertebrate species found in the last ten years, including 637 plants, 257 fish, 216 amphibians, 55 reptiles, 16 birds and 39 mammals. These included a 1.5 metre of catfish, a new species of anaconda (only the fourth anaconda species identified), and seven new species of monkey. Invertebrates aren’t included in this report, as thousands of new species have been identified.
