Brazilian Caatinga a Dry Subject
Geography professor Susan Woodward had wanted to see the Brazilian caatinga since she read about it in a class she took in college. Last summer, during her second trip to Brazil, she had her opportunity. Woodward's trip was part of an ongoing exchange program between RU and the Federal University of Pernambuco, a state in Northeastern Brazil. She wanted to investigate the possibility of establishing a directed field study program involving RU students and students from the University of Pernambuco. One RU student accompanied her on the trip. Woodward was invited by former RU student Antonio Correa to give a short course on arid lands biogeography. For five mornings, Correa interpreted while Woodward taught 15 Brazilian geography students about the western deserts of the U.S. In turn, the students offered comparisons with the backlandsthe caatingaof western Brazil. The following week, Woodward and five of the students took a four-day field trip to observe vegetation types in the backlands. "I loved it," said Woodward. "It was like a desert, but with all new species." Woodward also visited historic sugar cane fields and plantations in the area first settled by the Portugese. She experienced the changes in climate and vegetation as she moved from the coastal zone, through the sugar cane and up to the backlands plateau.

The fifth largest country in the world, Brazil occupies the lion's share of the land mass of the South American continent. This gigantic country occupies a total area of 3.3 million square miles (8.5 million sq km). It borders every South America country except Chile and Ecuador. Brazil is even larger than the US if we exclude Alaska. It's also larger than continental Europe if we exclude Russia. Brazil's geography is divided in four distinct regions: atlantic coast This long and narrow region (with over 4500 miles of coastline) lies from Maranhão state to the Uruguayan border. It extends from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the coastal mountains and central plateau on the west. On the northern states starting in Bahia, the region is flatter, containing calm oceans, sand dunes and palm and coconut trees.

Brazilian Immigration Used Katheryn Gallant ( and Davis. Brazil used to be a country that received immigrants from around the world. Before the 1960s, Brazil was a country that people immigrated to. In recent years, however, at least a million Brazilians have immigrated to the US, Europe and Japan. This trend may be increased by the recent Brazilian economic problems. In 1969 the Banco do Brasil opened a New York branch. In the same year he Brazilian-American chamber of Commerce was founded to promote trade and investment between the two countries. (Davis p. 10) Since April 1991, there have been no official statistics about Brazilian emigrants. We only know that the number of passports issued by the Federal Police in 1993 came to a total of 436,177. Of this number, we do not know how many decided to emigrate. We do know that the overwhelming majority of Brazilians in the United States (87 percent) were born in Brazil. The Brazilian Geography and Statistics Institute (IBGE) found a statistical "absence" of 1,379,928 Brazilians between the ages of 20 to 44 from the 1991 census (which IBGE researchers discovered while examining the census demographics). The most logical explanation is Brazilian emigration. Perhaps half of the emigrant Brazilians live in the United States. The largest Brazilian settlements are on the East Coast. New York is estimated to have between 80,000 to 150,000 Brazilian emigrants. Another 150,000 are estimated to live in Boston, 65,000 in Florida (mostly in the Miami area), 20,000 in California, 10,000 in Houston, Texas ,and another 10,000 in Washington, DC.

  • The National Anthem
    The verses of Brazilian Anthem were composed by Joaquim Osório Duque Estrada, a very erudite man who turned the anthem into a lesson of erudition. Unnecessary rare words and several complex sintatic constructions make the anthem hard to understand, even by literate Brazilians. Even so, it's worshiped by Brazilian citizens, from soccer fans to dignitaries.
    Visit the site of Brazilian consulate in Houston to take a look at a version of the Brazilian National Anthem in English (credits to the translators were not given). At the bottom of the page, you can play the anthem and listen to it.

    Related Category: South American Political Geography Brazil [br u Pronunciation Key Land Brazil's vast territory covers a great variety of land and climate, for although Brazil is mainly in the tropics (it is crossed by the equator in the north and by the Tropic of Capricorn in the south), the southern part of the great central upland is cool and yields the produce of temperate lands. Most of Brazil's large cities are on the Atlantic coast or the banks of the great rivers. The rain forests of the Amazon River basin occupy all the north and north central portions of Brazil. With the opening of the interior in the 1970s and 80s, these rain forests were heavily cut and burned for industrial purposes, farming, and grazing land. Beginning in the late 1980s, popular international movements, along with changes in government policy, began to reduce the rate of deforestation, but by the mid-1990s extensive burning was again occurring. The Amazon region includes the states of Amazonas ParA Acre AmapA ... Roraima , and RondOnia ; its chief city is Manaus . Although it is not as developed as other parts of Brazil, the Amazon region produces timber, rubber, and other forest products such as Brazil nuts and pharmaceutical plants. Gold mining, ecotourism, and fishing are also important. At the mouth of the Amazon is the city of

  • North Northeast Southeast South Center-West
  • Each of the five major regions has a distinct ecosystem. Administrative boundaries do not necessarily coincide with ecological boundaries, however. In addition to differences in physical environment, patterns of economic activity and population settlement vary widely among the regions. The principal ecological characteristics of each of the five major regions, as well as their principal socioeconomic and demographic features, are summarized below:

    Dateline: 11/09/97 (Rev. 10/18/00) Brazil (maps) is the fifth largest country in the world; in terms of population (163 million) as well as land area.* It is the economic leader of South America, with the ninth largest economy in the world, and a large iron and aluminum ore reserve. The Brazilian city of Sao Paulo is the third largest in the world with more than 22 million people. Physical Geography From the Amazon basin in the north and west to the Brazilian Highlands in the southeast, Brazil's topography is quite diverse. The Amazon River system carries more water to the ocean than any other river system in the world. It is navigable for its entire 2000 mile trip within Brazil. The basin is home to the most rapidly depleting rain forest in the world, losing about 52,000 square miles (20,000 square kilometers) annually. The basin, occupying more than sixty percent of the entire country, receives more than eighty inches (about 200 cm) of rain a year in some areas. Almost all of Brazil is humid as well as either has a tropical or subtropical climate. Brazil's rainy season occurs during the summer months. Eastern Brazil suffers from regular drought. There is little seismic or volcanic activity due to Brazil's position near the center of the South American Plate.
