    Hello all,

    I've been trying to translate some text regarding, among other things, different types of forests in the Darién Province of Panamá. I've encountered a number of words I'm not entirely sure how to translate properly. I've typed the whole phrases here exactly as I have them, punctuation and all:

    Bosque húmedo tropical (tropical humid forest seems strange)
    Bosques muy húmedo tropicales y premontanos
    Bosque Siempreverde Ombrofilo tropical latifoliado montano
    " " " " " submontano
    Bosque Semideciduo tropical de tierras bajas-bastante intervenido
    Bosque Siempreverde Ombrofilo tropical aluvial, ocasionalmente inundado dominado por Prioria

    Saludos!

    HOLA !

    A ver ...

    Bosque húmedo tropical : es Tropical Rain Forest
    Bosques muy húmedo tropicales y premontanos: Very rainy forests
    Bosque Siempreverde Ombrofilo tropical latifoliado montano: Evergreen forest ... no sé lo que ombrofilo es.
    Latifoliado es la clasificación de un tipo de hojas de árboles.
    Bosque Semideciduo tropical de tierras bajas-bastante intervenido: Tropical Forest of low lands-very interfered ¿?
    Bosque Siempreverde Ombrofilo tropical aluvial, ocasionalmente inundado dominado por Prioria: Evergreen Tropical Rain Forest, ocassionally flooded where Prioria (must be a type of tree) is more common.

    Híjole, pensé que sería de más ayuda ... pero en fin. Estoy segura que se dice TROPICAL RAIN FOREST.

    Eso no más ...

    It's an old thread now, but it's great to see people filling out the technical English terminology. Here is what I could find (some of it from the glossary I linked to in the first of my messages)

    Tropical rain forest
    High-precipitation, premontane tropical rain forest [Premontane - between 500 and 1500 m. of altitude]
    Tropical broad-leaved evergreen, rain-loving, montane forest
    " submontane forest [Submontane - at lower elevations <500 meters]
    Semi-deciduous tropical lowland forest, seriously affected/compromised [by man]
    Evergreen, rain-loving, tropical forest, alluvial and intermittently flooded, dominated by Prioria copaifera [a tree of Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama and Venezuela. Alluvial land contains soil deposited by flowing water]
