Brazils
AAA
One of the most important economic plants of the Amazon is the Brazil nut (Bertholletia excelsa, family Lecythidaceae). The edible seeds of this species, along with the latex of Hevea brasiliensis, are often cited as the most important products of extractive reserves in Amazonia. Brazil nuts are collected mostly during the wet season and rubber is tapped mostly during the dry season.
