Pacific Biodiversity Institute has produced the first map showing all of the roadless areas in South America. This map offers a preliminary assessment and will be refined throughout the project. These roadless areas are not uninhabitated, as they may include some agricultural land and small communities. What these maps show us is that South America contains numerous roadless areas over 1 million hectares. This makes us very optimistic. In these South American wildlands, the planet's biodiversity reaches its maximum expression. That is why we call it “biota maxima.”
