Solomon Islands rain forests
The Solomon Islands rain forests are a terrestrial ecoregion which includes most of the Solomon Islands. Not included in this ecoregion are the Santa Cruz Islands which lie to the east of the Solomons, and are part of the Vanuatu rain forests ecoregion, together with the neighboring archipelago of Vanuatu; and the islands of Bougainville and Buka, which are part of Papua New Guinea. Both ecoregions are part of the Australasia ecozone, which also includes the neighboring Bismarck Archipelago and New Guinea, as well as New Caledonia, Australia and New Zealand.
The Solomon Islands rain forests are a Tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forests ecoregion, also known as a tropical rainforest. The rainforests of this region are under threat as the Solomon Island government has expressed a desire to increase land for farming and roads.
