The Cerrado ecological region is characterized by wooded grasslands not subjected to widespread annual flooding. One can find Cerrado patchily distributed in the lowlands of northern La Paz and northern Beni. In northern and eastern Santa Cruz, Cerrado can be found on ridges and plateaus of low mountain ranges.
