Drimys confertifolia, Robinson Crusoe Island, Chile (12.01.09)

Canelo of Juan Fernandez (Drimys confertifolia), Winteraceae © Enrique CouveThe Canelo of Juan Fernandez forms mixed forests associating with other trees and tree ferns, preferably over 1,500 feet high.

This member of the genus Drimys has ancestral connections with the ancient super-continent of Gondwanaland. Today there are eight extant species ranging from Mexico to Cape Horn.

The tropical rainforest of Robinson Crusoe is a unique ecosystem within the oceanic islands of South America. It is regarded as the world's second locality of botanical importance due to its high plant diversity index, which is calculated in relation to the number of endemic species and the total island's area.
