    Bosque de Laurisilva de la época terciaria en el Parque Nacional de Garajonay.Isla de La Gomera.Islas Canarias.España. Patrimonio de la humanidad
    El bosque de Laurisilva es un ecosistema de la era Terciaria , se trata de una zona de una gran biodiversidad que comprende la formación vegetal denominada Laurisilva (bosque de árboles laurifolios) . Procede de las formaciones boscosas que hace millones de años poblaban el Norte de África y el Sur de Europa. En Canarias quedaron reductos de esta formación vegetal gracias a la existencia de los vientos alisios, que cargados de humedad chocan contra la vegetación de las islas elevadas que hace que esta humedad caiga al suelo en forma de lo que se conoce como lluvia horizontal . Todo ello contribuye a que esta zona mantenga la humedad prácticamente durante todo el año y de esta forma se pueda conservar esta maravilla del pasado.

This helps keep moisture this area practically all year round and thus can preserve this wonder of the past.
