Economy[edit]

I think that it would be good to have a section devoted to a discussion on the economy of the Azores. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.151.231.255 (talk) 22:19, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Biome[edit]

Biome section is mainly entirely dedicated on complaining with the environmental problems that islands have, not with the description of the biomes present on the islands, which is not good and realistic, I think. There are problems of course, but the part dedicated to it should be smaller.

But if we look better... Some conservation measures have been done in the marine area:

Also laursilva was replanted with success in several places (thanksfully, maybe by miracle no one deleted it). There are also highland eccossystems relatively well conserved («turfeiras», charnecas macaronésicas, etc...). Also some laurissilva forest pockets. For the priolo convervation project, for example, there are areas reforested with laurisilva tree species. Vila Franco do Campo, was reforested recently with laurisilva plants. And I could mention much more.

After editing, posting sources and explaining where lauisilva and other ecosystems in the Azores still exist, I almost gave up on wasting my time on this wikipedia, because a smart *ss deleted all the data.

Climate[edit]

"The climate of the Azores is very mild for such a northerly location" - isn't it on the same latitude as Sicily? That's not "such a northerly location" to me... 15.195.185.80 (talk) 14:54, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

No, part of the Azores is further North, than Sicily. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.37.171.168 (talk) 12:40, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

Capital(s)[edit]

The Azores do not have just one capital city (Ponta Delgada) but three; Angra do Heroísmo and Horta are also capital cities of the Azores Autonomous Region. Please correct that. --B.Lameira (talk) 07:24, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

Note to the IP hopper[edit]

This is not a forum to discuss possible links between the Azores and the Fortunate Isles. If you have sources that meet WP:RS that make the link, by all means bring them here. Claims about stepped pyramids would need reputable archaeological sources, even Graham Hancock said the photos were photoshopped. Doug Weller talk 12:58, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

The description of the geodynamic setting is overly complex[edit]

The description of the spatial relationship between the islands and tectonic faults in “Physical geography” subsection is long-winded and difficult to understand. Perhaps someone who possesses artistic skill could copy the map from this image: http://www.scielo.mec.pt/img/revistas/rgci/v14n2/14n2a11f2.jpg . It would make things much easier to understand. 46.242.13.150 (talk) 08:24, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
