Mandara Plateau Mosaic is a ecoregion located in northern Nigeria and southern Cameroon.

Setting[edit]

This ecoregion is found in the Mandara Mountains on the border between northern Nigeria and southern Cameroon, an area with a long wet season from May to October.

Flora[edit]

The area was once home to a number of rare and endemic plants. [1]

Threats and preservation[edit]

Problems facing the region stem from the intense agriculture and include heavy grazing, collection of firewood, and burning, which have cleared nearly all of the region. There are no protected areas.
